My ideas come from my imagination in a completely improvisational, passionate way. I love to see open, breathing, moving space create entry ways deep into the picture plane on the flat surface of linen. I compose with ‘chords of notes,’ as in ‘lines in jazz,’ through color. My paintings ‘sing’ through the light that emanates from the color combinations themselves. I ‘listen’ to how the paint wants to move. The horizon gives prelude to what is beyond landscape in the paintings, (thus, the abstraction), as I want ‘to push it there,’ beyond what the eye sees as gravity/sky landscape. I am developing the tradition coming out of cubism and then Hofmann’s plastic space.
