Statement Using the “start with a broom, finish with a needle” painting technique, I am appropriating rudiments of nature and/or religious iconography in a surrealist manner. Robert Henri, of the Ashcan School, taught that painters should paint ideas. I strive to paint ideas. Ideas that consciously and unconsciously develop to reveal rolling, pattern infused landscapes, spheres, figurative forms and movement. When starting work, my ideas are broad, vague and rarely fixed with determined visions, so paintings evolve by chance, usually conveying what is or is not working along the way. Sinclair Community College, Dayton, Ohio (with deference to these mentors): Cindy Tiedemann, B.F. A. Annamary Bierly, M.F. A. Curtis Barnes, Sr. , B.S. Some favorites: Emily Carr 1871-1945 George Bellow 1882-1925 Lawren Harris 1885-1970 Franklin Carmichael 1890-1945 Kay Sage 1898-1963 Aminah Robinson 1940-2015 Nighttime toiling in uncertainty, stumbling to pictures that pop. Painting worries to infinity, maybe... not for naught.
