Bury The Hatchet, Stars Are Falling
These landscape paintings are a reflection of movement towards peace over turmoil both personally and within my work.  My obsession with color and gesture, which previously manifested in frenetic, aggressive mark making, is now opening into larger quiet color fields and softening horizons.  A prevailing theme of “as above so below” conveys an essence of temperance and self-mastery, both internally and externally.  This gradual surrender has led to a new level of self-control within my work. With these paintings I have sought to balance familiar aspects of abstract expressionism with more deliberate elements of composition.
