Artist Statement

Artist's Statement

Paintings speak with pictures not with words. 

Life's Work

I have developed a process for making images. This process routinely involves establishing a set of limitations before I begin a body of work.  Most of the time, I choose a finite number of works to be completed as a suite of related images. I structure my activity of work so that I can concentrate on material, touch, texture, and surface.  In almost all cases, form is a consequence of this activity. Content is discovered while making images under a controlled set of conditions imposed on my activity of work.  To this end, form becomes content.  However, some projects have subjects such as “Rejection Letters,” “Thank You For Giving Me Knowledge,” and “Rednecks.”

I have mapped a plan of action based on the letters of the alphabet.  Each letter represents a body of work.  Each work is labeled with a letter and a chronological numeral (A01, A02, A03, A04, etc.).  The project is named alpha/beta.  If I complete one letter of the alphabet each year, I will finish my life/works/projects at the age of 56.
