I strive for a complicated simplicity. My color, line and form; all are interchangable. None exist without the others. My art is the art of paradox... tense, yet flowing... soft, and strong... romantic, and tough.... formless, and structured.... simple and complex. In other words, a combination of impossibilities. Most important of all, is light.... made from a combination of varied surfaces.... washes, impasto, mixed media, contrasts and tonal variations... which (for me) is the life of all successful painting no matter what the subject.
