A Few Words About the Exhibit
I started painting landscapes mostly to be outside. Painting became my personal dialogue with nature. I was never concerned with accurately documenting a place, instead the paintings were attempts to conjure the essential nature of the subject and my own connection to it.
Generally, the picture plane is flattened to emphasize the relationship between objects and to bring the viewer more closely into the scene. Forms are stylized and colors are enhanced or left pure. Compositions are chosen to create rhythm and balance. The struggle is to obtain unity. It should be balanced but not quite, precise but not perfect. Life should be sensed just under the surface.
