My paintings are a pictorial conversation in real time. In genuine dialogue one has to be open to the presence of otherness, be it another person, tradition, history, or a work of art.
I approach the canvas in an improvisational dialogue I want to explore but don’t know its end point. I see the physical space of the canvas as containing the conversation as it is played out through marks, gestures, intention, accident, space, and materials. This process of discovery is alive with energy, sometimes frustration, and animated by both formal concerns and a psychological awareness of the facts of embodiment and embeddedness in a web of relationships—person, woman, mother, wife, sister, daughter.
I am painting my side of the conversation as well as the other voice, and being open to this other voice is what animates my work and allows it to unfold on the canvas. Kinetic energy is generated by a dialogue of complementary opposites: abstract/figurative, hard edge abstraction and more gestural painting, control and accident, order and chaos, humor and pathos.
