My work has consistently been about order-order which is created out of a kind of chaos and an order that is implicit in nature.
These paintings deal with the simplification and ordering of multiplicity. It is an effort to give focus, meaning and visual assimilation to what otherwise might seem complicated or overwhelming.
These images are full of color. I then start the process of reducing the vibrancy gradually with the overlays. My intent is not to cover completely what lies below, but to temper what lies below while leaving the vestige of energy showing through.
