Artist Statement

Veil; to conceal, hide, disguise, screen or obscure.
Reveal; to make known, disclose, divulge.

The themes explored in this collection are that of balance and clarity
ďa state of equilibrium; equality in amount, weight, value, or importance, as between two things or the parts of a thing
the quality or condition of being clear; free from guilt or a charge of guilt; to rid of obstructions, entanglement
or obstacles; open...Ē

{Iím} inviting the viewer to step in and appreciate this perspective, and allow the viewer to look for deeper meanings.

The process is a result of wood, color, paint, something to scrape with, water, design elements, idea, emotion, feeling,
and an atmosphere coming together in a stream of consciousness composition that draws upon inspirations found in
various everyday situations. I carefully use all these elements to create the story that wishes to be told. Each painting
has itís own meaning, and as a collection they refer to each other. In a very similar way that people and the world
communicate.


The circle and the square symbols are repeated until they become an iconic theme that evokes an elegant, organic,
meditative quality. The idea of duality in these two elements suggest both past and future, heaven and earth, male
and female, opposites and mutual antithesis of inwards and outwards which is also represented in the layering of paint.
In astrology the circle represents the human spirit, the inner individual. In Western ideography the circle is a general
symbol for the eternal, the endless, that which is without beginning or end, all possibilities. The circle calls attention to
those signs it encircles. A center of communication.
The square in a horizontal-vertical position is an expression of the two dimensions that constitute a surface. Basically
means land, field, ground, or the element earth. The sign placed within the square indicates the Ďweather'sí effect on
the ground. In astrology the square signifies the most difficult and tense aspect that can occur between two planets in
a natal chart.
The rectangle becomes apart of the process, as well, adding yet another element to be considered.
The vertical rectangle or standing rectangle is very seldom used in Western ideography. In itís use doubled, though the
rectangle is found on video appliances, meaning control button for pause. The horizontal rectangle was used already by
the Egyptians, where it meant garden pool. As a genealogical sign means buried.
The layering of paint is meant to conceal and expose at the same time, continuing the balance of duality. And in doing
so, to seek clarity in a greater meaning of oneís own identity and history.
