Geometry of Light

 

I begin working when I have a vision or perceive a message that can be conveyed in the form of a certain colour or shape. The internal process is what matters. The point is communicate with materials such as paint and paper. These require skill in craftsmanship.

The brilliant violinist and multi-media artist Laurie Anderson has said "I am not wedded to the idea that all art is personal expression." She gives an example of listening to the birds and being able to respond to them in a language that they understand.

I aspire to listen to the message of an intensely saturated pigment, a deliciously soft handmade paper, or my painterly instruments. But if I choose a subject that has meaning in itís location, eg, a snow-covered mountain, the painting might become a narrative. The viewer brings personal experience to a dialogue with the painting a unique interaction.
