Drawing precedes painting in my work. Since 1998 I’ve used compasses to choreograph networks of circular form, based on sine waves, or ‘s’ curves. I’m interested in centrifugal/centripetal forces, & in edges setting up tension and flow.
Color fleshes out these structures in gouache or oil. The surfaces are precise and uninflected, allowing spatial interaction to reveal itself. I want the images to act as suspended, yet connected slices of light, breathing, tense, emergent.
