From landscape to still life, to recent compositions bordering on abstraction … it is all about being in relationship with life! The journey is both personal and universal. Poetry and metaphor exist everywhere. The primary underlying challenge is always to pay attention … honor intuition … and to stay engaged. Continuity is EVERYTHING!
As physical beings living in a three dimensional world, representational references in painting will always be viable no matter the artistic trends or curatorial leanings of the times. I sincerely believe there is something sacred and enduring in this disciplined act of truthfulness. As Diebenkorn so aptly put it … “a realistic or non-objective approach makes no difference. The result is what counts.”
