Artist Statement:

Every layer of liquid color becomes a new surface, another ground indelibly saturating the linen. In this way, color becomes as much physical as it is visual. Horizontal bands lighten and deepen, hues structured to variant tempos, melodic lines coursing and intersecting into a set of spatial shifts found between illusion and location: internal connectedness becomes external dialogue. This is for you.

Measure by measure, encoded marks are set down, and incrementally become a means of visual transport, a vehicle for exploration. All things become gradations of the other: from dark to light, from base camp to overlook, from inside bridging out. Here exist the complexities, nuances, the root systems that feed one another. You can only see this line in relation to the other, and the implied lines (the ones you cannot actually see) give deference to the ones you can.

50 new paintings, each one 13” x 13” x 2¾”. Every piece is an extension of the other and an interdependent member with its neighbor. With influences ranging from jazz improvisation to color theories, from Vermeer to Albers, from Dostoevsky to Emmanuel Levinas, from Wes Montgomery to Ralph Ellison, this new body of work rhythmically improvises its way through the diverse issues where “the face of the other” becomes the means by which individual works (and we as individuals) find identity.
