WEEKEND 4: HAYES VALLEY

I tend to work with an eye on current ideas that stretch what we already know. The sciences; physics, chemistry, biology, and astronomy in particular, are more apt to supply me with motifs than, say, mythology, politics, or religion.
The perspective in my painting is that of the viewer. When I am working, I wonder about things like: How does gravity affect what you are seeing? How does density affect what you are seeing? How do the colors affect someone, both emotionally and viscerally. How do the shapes relate both to one another and overall? How does the size and shape of the painting relate to the size and shape of a human being? Is there a meaning, or the absence of one?
I primarily make my paintings for the enjoyment of the viewer. My goal is to provide an aesthetic experience that allows the viewer to become more aware of one’s seeing and thinking.
