Current Work Statement

My current work synthesizes specific aspects of the visual environment as a source. The focus is on print matter found in advertising, packaging and graphics and what bombards us from our television screens and our other devices. You might call this the modern “still life” but it also pervades the landscape as seen on billboards, roadside signage and the identities of our buildings in urban centers. This is our milieu, man-made and at times, over-dominant and chaotic. In my search for form, I follow my instinct to try to bring order to this environment. The collages I make from tear sheets and words and print from magazines reflect and combine elements from this experience. As sketches, their designs suggest possible schemes for larger more finished compositions. When applied to canvas as paintings, these ideas have developed into complete statements on their own.
