Artist's Statement

The "Refraction Series" began in 2012 and continues to be the major focus of my work. The subject of these still life paintings is not the objects that fill the canvas but what can't be touched; light, refraction, reflection, shadow, and how marks and color describe these things to create the impression of the object to the eye.

Other mediums provide expression for different projects such as Spirit's Flight, an exploration of divine proportion or PHI using images derived from x-rays of pigeons.  An example with this work is on the Spirit's Flight page.
