"My paintings explore specific qualities of light as both an observed experience and as a phenomenon of memory of place. Along with the specificity of light in each painting, there is also a sense of the universal in that my paintings are not depicting any particular view of scenery…rather they serve as an archetype to the process of painting itself, with the insistence of gestural brushstrokes confirming the overall idea of the painting as an abstraction first and foremost."
