Artist Statement

My work is both abstract and figurative. All of the work shares a common interest in texture and color. I enjoy exploring the light-reflecting and light-absorbing qualities of different fabrics and various acrylic media. Currently I am incorporating fabric into each piece in different ways. For example, with figurative work the canvas might be covered with satin, allowing the folds and blemishes to add character to the figures painted over the fabric. With abstract pieces I sometimes use fabric and paint over a layer of cement, working on wood rather than canvas. I have also recently produced a number of photo-realistic charcoal drawings, created digital prints of these on paper or canvas, and then used fabric, acrylic and acrylic media to abstract over them. And most recently, I have been deconstructing various works by sanding and tearing, and then reconstructing new pieces. See Cement Monoprint #1 and Tabula Rasa.

Artist Bio

I have been painting and exhibiting since the mid 60's and that is what I currently do full time. I have been affiliated with several galleries over the years, most currently with the Studio Gallery in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington DC.
