“Each painting is a kind of discovery, a discovery of new forms, color relation, or balance in composition. With every painting completed, the artist may change his viewpoint to suit the discoveries made, making his vision many-sided.”
July is an especially busy month and I look forward to presenting my new paintings. As I write this, nine new paintings are on the way to Chicago for the July 23rd opening of “Surface Elements”, a two person show at Gallery KH. Next week a number of new works will be delivered to the Cousen Rose Gallery for a feature show opening July 17th. Beginning July 22nd, the Lagerquist Gallery will be featuring a collection of my works.
"Shifting Admiration" 48" x 36" work on canvas
Quite often I think of the view from an airplane window and how the surface below is mapped out by the intervention of the human hand. The roads, the buildings and homes, the congestion in contrast with open spaces and how those elements interact with natural elements and each other. There is somehow always an ordered sense of chaos, a quiet beauty, when the landscape is viewed from above. Borrowing from virtual images of the earth’s surface, I have enjoyed the ability to travel over the landscape at will. My paintings for this new series of work have been influenced by the complexities of pattern, structure of lines and vast open spaces discovered through those virtual travels.

but in having new eyes.”
