“My paintings are language formed between the boundaries of speech and silence, form and formlessness, logic and intuition, inner and outer worlds, and how they connect. These images are reflections drawn from relationship of emotional memories stored within the walls of unoccupied spaces of an earlier time. I am interested in the strength of intuition of the unknown, the place of silence that color brings where words are lost. I want each painting to ask something, and at its best moments, I want the question to remain unanswered. It is the place between speech and silence that the viewer brings knowledge, experience and memory. How their images are interpreted, and conceptualized within a place that connects with mine.
