Artist Statement
In my current work I use pattern and color to create very close and intimate space. These paintings are about confronting an ambiguous surface where there's no clear figure or ground. Pencil lines reveal my process including scribbles and corrections. Then, like artists of the last century- Mondrian, LeWitt, Agnes Martin- I use color relationships to describe light and depth. For a decade in the 1990s, I worked closely with the late architect Michael Graves, implementing his color ideas and drawing style. He became my greatest mentor when it came to color and line. Currently, I work as a color consultant and I have a studio practice in Boston. I'm also an adjunct professor at Wentworth Institute in the Department of Design.
