ARTIST STATEMENT

I am currently engaged in a series of paintings titled Dreamscape, Firmament, Aquascape, and River of Dreams. The watercolor and acrylic paintings depict an ethereal and subliminal sense of place. The work uses watercolor and acrylic on paper or canvas sometimes including digital prints as a background layer. The controlled liquidity of the water based media creates an abstract atmospheric depth of sky, water and terrain. 

I explore complex spatial relationships, using organic line, lush fields of color, shape and mark making. The effect is of a dream like unconscious place as opposed to a specific geographic location, creating the effect of a space ranging from the micro-biological to the macro-astrological. There are also references to the way the surface of the earth is transformed by geology and weather.
