I like to work in the space between figuration and abstraction. As much as I dislike labels, the term biomorphic abstraction may come close to what viewers see when they look at my work. I use a lot of different primal shapes and forms that remind many of biological, botanical or even celestial forms. I thrive on the challenge of making these contrasting forms, textures and colors work together. Whether the work is primarily sculptural or painterly I am trying to evoke and explore visceral feelings. Much of it is an attempt to evoke the mystery and exhilaration of growth and change as well as the desire for and fear of union. Viewers see many different things in my work and that’s fine with me.
