ARTIST STATEMENT

What drives the work?

The joy of an intense colour palette has inspired me ever since I encountered the cultural art of Mexico when I was very young.

Asymmetry can achieve a dynamic equilibrium, inviting you, my partner in this adventure, to experience a range of emotions and interplay with the art.

At times I paint a memory.  An emotion.  A melody.  Is that conveyed?  Or does the work become a catalyst

to awaken a memory, emotion or sensation in you as you perceive the painting?

If things align, both can be realized.


At times I paint an equation.

Equations have an inherent beauty apart from the scientific meanings they convey.  You need not understand the math to be able to appreciate the aesthetic.

They can intrigue and please all on their own.  And, sometimes, they are enhanced by the shock of a new setting.
