My works stand against the onslaught of the digital static and noise of the modern world, to take the viewer to a space of light and imagination, serenity and the infinite; a world of mindscapes and lightscapes.
All of my works are done outdoors in nature; painting what I feel about what I see and experience.
The materials are combinations of metals; copper, brass, silver, aluminum et al. I utilize a new technique that binds metal to heavy paper. Since the metals are not fluid like typical artist materials (e.g. oil, acrylic, water colors), to work with them I had to create new tools from bamboo, heavy cotton and neoprene.
Traditional paintings present the same image, no matter the lighting or viewing angle. Since each metal diffracts and reflects light at different angles, the position of the light and the viewer creates independent images. These works are 3 and 4 dimensional; they move, hover and sway in time and space creating a richer more transcendent experience for the viewer.
