22" X 18" Acrylic on Bristol Board
I am a longtime resident of Shrewsbury, NJ where I established a studio in 1987. Under the mentorship of artist Dorothy Yung I experimented with mixed media / collage, entering and showing in many juried exhibits throughout the United States.
These particular works are a departure for me as there is more painting & less collage elements in them than previously.
The imagery is not exactly representational. It hints at figures, landscape and objects in hopes of allowing the viewer to create meaning using his/her own imagination and experiences.
I try to be fearless when approaching the blank surface, and usually begin with no set agenda, other than a color or shape I want to explore. This often leads to unexpected results.
