artist statement           


In great art there is some mysterious confluence of the formal elements that creates a harmonious visual experience. Beyond the visual, some art can evoke heightened consciousness for the viewer. Even if it just lasts an instant, there is a euphoric sense of connection. It is an elusive ideal, but working with the right intention, an artist may occasionally attain it.

Minimal art dealt with a new vision of beauty that was austere; elemental. It also opened possibilities for experiential phenomena to occur. In the presence of the art object, the viewer may experience a heightened awareness of spaces, colors, or other qualities of the site.

I am interested in the interaction of color and in very structured composition. I enjoy the experiential quality - such as a glow - that often results. I believe in making art that has a simple, positive, peaceful presence.
