Sequential Realities

Artist’s Statement

The paintings are about places familiar to me, some for more than 50 years.  What I tease out of them as I construct, reconstruct, or deconstruct is what I have to show.  Each is finished when it becomes something new. When it shows me what I never knew was there.

The intaglio prints are about a different landscape, an interior mental one, which has evolved since the 70’s and is populated by forms and shapes which allude to both the animate and inanimate aspects of the world around us.  

In the smaller paintings especially, I’ve juxtaposed and combined elements from both of these landscapes, often using in the paintings the look of some traditional and historic printmaking techniques.
