Process is an important and defining source for these images. They deal with reality but at a studied distance. The work is involved
in primary relationships and in the content of shape, impacted by color, edge condition, linear detail, and surface. They seek to exploit the intersection of accidental and residual aspects of process with more purposeful decisions. Which is to say that they exploit both divergent and convergent strategies. Feeling and form are not seen as mutually exclusive. Metaphor is not sought, but emerges. Monumentality, sensuality and iconic figuration, are primary protagonists. The work draws inspiration from twentieth century painters which include, Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko, Morris Louis, Ellsworth Kelly and Gerhard Richter. They evidence an interest in reconciling issues raised by both Louis and Kelly.
