overview

“I paint men and women moving through the light, space and the shadows of New York.

“These figures may come together by a fountain in the park, or watch each other across the distance of a theater as a play is in progress. They walk down the long perspectives of a museum gallery, we follow them by the river front as they lean against a railing, looking out toward the city skyline across the sun bright water. And we secretly observe them in a restaurant, their whispered conversations reflected to infinity in a double mirror.

“These scenes represent the emotional intensity of intimacy in the city, yet the atmosphere is created by paint: thin glazes, transparent and flowing, are set off by smoky shadows, some rough and grainy, brushed across the canvas, contrasted by the high brilliance of light.”
