Landscapes Paintings


My paintings and drawings are allegorical and narrative with personal and
social emphasis. Themes are many times open ended with multi meanings
and suggestions for the viewer as well as myself. Ambiguity and mystery
are common in my work. Symbolism is evident whenever it appears in
landscapes, still lives, figures, portraits, interiors, or abstractions. These
subjects and symbols are the vehicle for visions with a dreamlike quality. I
many times use a large variety of drawing and paintings mediums within one
drawing or painting. Moods and ideas are expressed through color, texture,
and movement. The techniques I use include hands, fingers, and brushes
applied with differing angles, pressures and speeds. The tactile nature of
thick, action filled paint strokes often brings strong reaction from the viewer.
Each work has a distinct orientation as to distance and angles enabling us to
view an optical mix of colors and textures. Three-dimensional aspects
accent the dramatic and the bold in my work. I would describe my artwork
as a response and expression to the world around me.
