This web site offers two bodies of work that have developed independently yet simultaneously over the past forty years.  While the differences are obvious and even dramatic, subtle connections and resonances are significant.

The representational figure paintings are built from layers of marks and colors and films of glaze, as are the non-objective collages.  The non-objective collages, which appear to be distilled down to sheer playful interaction of color and texture, carry content that relates to the natural world.

In “Self Portrait with My Father”, two figures share the same space and moment, yet introspection and diverted attention separate them.  In “Fear of Aphasia”, the safe and solid structures of spiral and grid shimmer and seem on the brink of disintegration.

I’m interested in that old notion, that things can be more than what they seem.
