Abstract Views of the Real

Blue_Barn_Cayuga_Bigness_37x49

As an artist, I observe the world through a unique lens relying upon memory, perception, and past experience to interpret reality through the aesthetic of abstraction.

In this body of work, my creative process focused on two distinct images, the man-made and the natural.  The first is the classic American barn in all its various conditions of deterioration to the contemporary efforts to revive its once familiar grandness in our countries’ vast landscape.

The second is realized through the reflection of experiences with an aesthetic sense of time and place.  Our environment is in a constant state of change and will appear differently to those populating our world one hundred years from now.  My purpose is to preserve what I experience when observing our world and to present an aesthetic understanding of the abstract through the manipulation of paint and surface.

Whether it is man-made or part of our natural world, there is a subtle beauty to be found in the deterioration of our environment. As I pass through this world and take in the layers of destruction and renewal, I record what I see and use my creative output to give the world hope and a renewed sense of understanding for what is already a part of our reality.
