“Through diverse media, eras, and conceptual concerns, I remain an artist committed to spirituality and social change. My paintings are physical; they explore paint and surface, print and voice, the plastic arts, and verbal expression, a painted or collaged thought, poem or song. My work expresses a Symbolist aesthetic in image, and the work strives to be spiritual and political in thought. I strive to bring socio-political ideas into the abstract work. My work communicates with the inner self and the outer world. The artist creates and the viewer is transformed. I am always seeking the muse, and challenging myself to respond through my paintings to create and communicate a visual vocabulary. I am in-spired to continue to work to find clarity in this “in between space”, between social justice and spirituality. I move on now to the thick layering of paper, and text, and graphite, and then un-painting it all, as I perceive these rectangular shapes in my work, I remember Rothko's universe opening up before me, and I am transformed by the sublime nature of the creation of the work. I have tried to adopt the attitude of improvisation in my work. I express my fascination with the physicality of the painted surface, and respond through painting and collage. The work emerges after experimenting with mediums, monotypes, creating a series of abstract paintings utilizing collage, monochromatic color relationships, and material exploration of texture, paint, and surface. I developed an approach to image making that is influenced by both my painting and is very much influenced by my print-making. The use of textured paper, embedding the paper into the canvas is a direct result of my work in monotype printmaking. I have tried to speak loudly in the softest of voices in this painting, engaging the viewer through paint, painting and un-painting, writing and erasing, covering and texturing the surfaces that represent the multidimensional society we find ourselves existing in as we continue to free fall into our unknown future.”
