Paintings and Drawings
“I am interested in the effect of light on the perception of space, and in the significance of scale: specifically, size of image relative to its support. These are relatively small paintings, yet the scale of the image is correspondent to the actual size of the observed architecture. Neither illusion nor abstraction, the work seeks a clarification of the relationship of conventions inherent in representation with the many formal issues I am concerned with. The recognizability of the repeated architectural elements is important, as is the evocative image which is maintained despite extremely minimal interpretation. I hope that the issues of seriality, surface, scale, light and space are evident as the motivating thought processes, and that these are enriched rather than diminished by the context I see as so reciprocal.
