[ 2020-21 ]
A new series emerging during a fall residency in Montana. 

There is a fullness, a richness of color and composition that I’ve returned to in this work as I explore mixed media on linen canvas. In this place, wild and vast, I continue to nod toward the natural world with an expression and energy beyond representation. The work is gestural, intuitive, sponteaneous, personal. Reaching beyond the canvas, the inquiry is physical: “What does it feel like? How does it move?” This is where color and gesture braid an intimate abstraction. Compositions that are kinetic, activating a viewer’s imagination in unique ways each time.  

More photographs and available works to come.
