Brooklyn, New York+ MORE INFO
My work follows broadly in the tradition of figurative expressionism. Reflecting my lifelong interest in all things natural, trees make up the primary figurative subject-matter of my paintings, although I am less concerned with representing form as in expressing an emotional response. No doubt related to my long residence in New York City, these trees tend toward the anthropomorphic and reach out with near-sentient limbs to “take the measure of the Earth” (true “geometry”). Orderly grid (the city, perhaps, or human pretensions of control) and disorderly emotion (nature) embrace one another in a sort of love-hate relationship only possible between the self and ... the self.
