Radiant Ladder
24 x 20 in.

The structures, pattern and textures of my natural and manmade environment and the order that is found in apparent chaos are my concerns as a painter.

I build patterns of stripes and chevrons with seductive surfaces and rich colors. In some of my paintings, a new structure with it’s own contrasting rhythm appears to float just above the picture plane, mediating the patterns embedded below. the inspiration for my work sometimes happens when I experience an aerial view of Earth, with it’s visible layered systems both natural and manmade.
