“In my abstract imagery of the past few years I have layered repeating circles to create a kind of grid or lattice. Recently these circular shapes have loosened up to be more gestural, showing a more obvious open grid work. I have always been interested in combining an expressionist tendency with a relatively minimalist appreciation of structure. Originally from Chicago, I was attracted to New York in part because of the legacy of abstract expressionism. My recent paintings join my interest in line and structure with a more lush, wet-on-wet painting technique.”
