This world and new ones

In this series, I urge viewers to consider the scope of existence, between today and tomorrow, this world and new ones, earth and sea. Inventing these imaginary scenes using myriad techniques such as rag stamping, printmakers’ brayers, or foam mono-printing, I paint expressionist, but thoroughly planned, rhythmic patterns and colorful vistas on hand-crafted 1.5″ wood panels. The paintings are controlled but bold, using light and shadow to move the eye, add mystery, and reveal “God in the work”, i.e., the element of chance. My recent art is highly textured with rich impasto, scraping, whiplash striations, and plenty of layering, creating both freedom and a challenge to continually invent new color combinations and vistas within this structure.
