This group of recent oil paintings shows a new development in my painting that is looser, and more concerned with the spontaneity of paint. I use a lot of medium in the paint and load up my brush to keep it that way, I paint to invent and to create relationships of shape and color I have not seen before. Human figures are almost always present. They appear in scenarios I develop in the paintings in relationship with abstract forms that delight me when they appear. By isolating figures and creating relationships with abstraction mystery is implied. These paintings are a response to visual experiences I have, at least they start there. When I paint, I feel like I am in a tunnel and the act of originating the imagery illuminates my experience of humanity.
