Artist Statement:   

Trusting in the convergence. 

As with recent history; the best of times, the worst of times, a stand still moment, the impact of the pandemic, is governing a new circumstance. 

My studio work is similar; reflection and encounter mixed with my resistant material has its results. 

 

Practice Statement: principles of elements - painting, sculpture, work on paper; 

After many years of practice I trust a degree of empathy and understanding have found lodging in me. I no longer have any pervasive agendas so feel free to address any subject I like. This and a more patient approach is resulting in a new productivity.

The nature of a convergence; the experience of three or more things occurring or arriving at the same place at the same time remains the cornerstone of my perceptions and practice. Because convergences usually occur subtly and so often unnoticed the consequential phenomena is seldom perceived  immediately. Attention to these incidences can help describe and open one up to so much.

In my studio the experience is similar, though often unnoticed , nonetheless the objective is to be engaged and responsive. Alert and present, surrounded by past work and some goals, I may merely add to the “debris”, but the engagement has potential.  An unfinished drawing, painting or sculpture may get finished, a new idea may occur. All in benefit of my hope to make coherent artifacts, intuitively accessible and subjectively understood.
