There are fragmented visions of color, line, and shape that flash briefly in my head. Sometimes the visions appear randomly. Sometimes they are the result of an emotional response to music, people, and other stimuli. My paintings try to capture these visions.
Since these visions are fragmented I rely subconsciously on certain compositional elements to let my brush “fill in the blanks”. With no definite beginning or end, and no blueprint, my work is subject to any number of interpretations.
As a result each viewer can come away with their own unique ideas and their own emotional response. In this regard I often equate abstract painting to instrumental music.
