Artist Statement

I question the place and role of color: on lines, as lines, or replacing lines. The works I have been doing reflect my career long interest in the details of line and color, the creation of shapes and the placement of these on paper, or in space. These paintings reflect my thinking about direction and how changes in density of paint or use of water define and subtly change the composition. As the paint flows, it changes directions. Paint flow into lines of denser color. Areas formed are not defined by enclosed lines; rather they indicate new colors. The paintings may suggest by chance, landscapes, mountains, rocks and whatever the viewer sees.
