1989. Art is in good preowned condition, not framed. Medium is chalk on art paper. Please see pictures for details. Artist Statement: At heart, I’m a sculptor – (that would rather paint). Using oil paint on wood panels, I invent sculptures and place them together in settings – where they can breathe and interact. As stories emerge, I think of new objects to add to the mix, my process is a dialog, an idea machine. When painting, I hope to create a sort of incarnation of the objects themselves. I find shaping the wood “canvases” helps that. The carved lines, expressing emotion for me, movement, and energy, are a vital part of both the process and the finished piece – that important physical engagement I look for in art. I love wailing away with those sharp chisels! Ideally, when I paint, my intention is to go into my studio alone and be totally present and alive to my visceral body, and the buzzing in my mind – fully immersed in my intuition.
