I think of my imagery as pictorial equations in which I engage the viewer to interpret solutions as they will. My current work, whether figurative or abstract, is intended to dimensionally rearrange the surface plane into a multitude of spatial shifts. Compositionally the images are at times purposely off balance, other times harmonious or a combination of both. My new work focuses on experimentation in watercolor, a medium which has been important to me in all my years as a painter. I create my own recipes for the results I wish to achieve. Overall I have an impulse to invoke fictitious forces, stir them up and allow free will to play its part in determining the result of the imagery. I consider the process an experiment in both materials and ideas, taking a static surface and turning it into an animated life force.
