Artist Statement

My paintings come out as attempts to translate  from the fantastic hieroglyphs that I see in the patterns of nature, mostly in the tree bark. 

In other words, they are sort of ""snapshots"" from the process of ""reading"" the Book of Nature by the mind.These snapshots exist some where in between the imagery and the language. I think that trees are folios and libraries that can be read, perhaps as well as any thing around if we attune to it…The mind projects meanings onto the shapes and lines, but they are being reflected back,  startling and puzzling… there is always a sensation of a mirror dialog, of having been read by the Book of Nature itself.
