The line is one of the most basic marks a human can make. It’s also one of the most abstract marks, and is rich with significance (think of . . . draw the line, Maginot line, line to infinity, time line, shipping line, fashion line . . . the list goes on).
One of the first things learned in art class is that when you’re stumped, the teacher tells you to turn your canvas upside down. Anyone who has ever studied art learns right away that when there’s a problem to solve, look at the situation in a new way. My paintings take this idea and carry it all the way out. Doesn’t anything depend on how one looks at it?
My paintings are also about how colors appear different to the eye when juxtaposed uniquely. Is anything ever really the same again? Isn’t perspective everything? Isn’t living about learning new ways to see and think?
