These paintings begin in the non-objective- allowing structures and landscapes to form as layers are added. The process usually produces imagery possessing semi-coherent relations to the physical world. I sought to bring an amalgam of abstraction into the realm of space/place, linking subconscious with conscious. The work can be compared to other artists who apply an opposite method, producing landscape-to-abstraction work, which seeks to break down referenced imagery. Rather, the result of these compositions generate a boundless circumstance, engaging in a conversation about the ineffable. Many of these are straight forward metacognitive (mentally reflective) studies visually expressing the mind as it turns a corner or enters a new mode.
All paintings in this series are oil on linen or cotton canvas.
