Artist Statement
“Many of my works start out with some kind of printing process and are further developed through drawing, painting and collage. The presence of hand, automatism, and fortutious happenings are all significant ingredients. The works are basically abstract with emphasis on form as foundation and meaning. The form relationships are augmented with semiotic associations that need not have specific or exclusive meaning. Diverse viewer interpretations of these associations become an accumulation of meanings over time, and a necessary extension of the meaning of the work as a whole.”
