Inspiration : ikebana & female silhouette

Made in America Contemporary Art
New Work May 2015

…from artist statement…”My work — canvas and sculpture — in the purest sense is rooted in the beautiful, calligraphic letterform.

Current work explores the female form silhouette and Ikebana flower compositions. Though unintentional, my work (most often) portrays an Asian or Zen sensibility and is without doubt, rooted in an unexplainable kinship with the aesthetics of Japanese art forms and culture. In stark contrast to recent years of complex canvases, heavy with form, industrial and bold, masculine movements, current canvasses are softer, feminine, yet ambitious brushwork seems to shine with energetic lightness.

2015 is celebratory, it is my 26th year of painting — I believe, this is the beginning of the maturation of my studio work. Finally!”

Miniature paintings

Little paintings are a part of my featured work during the studio open house – 1st weekend in December. It’s a totally different kind of creative space to work small vs large scale. Miniature work doesn’t happen if my creativity is demanding mops of Sumi ink and 15ft linen panels.
