Visionary Landscape and Still Life
My work focuses on the communication of sensation while observing a landscape or a still life arrangement. Both in the northeastern mountain region of Pennsylvania and in the central region of Florida, in landscape and still life I record the visual experience with paintings, collages and drawings. In my studios located in Pennsylvania and in Florida, what has evolved is imagery that evokes a sensory, ephemeral feeling rather than a photographic recollection.Toward this purpose, an interplay takes place between the perceptual analysis of the subject and my intuitive response to it. During the creative process the color ground is gradually articulated with lines and shapes. The process continues until fruition, culminating in a visionary landscape or visionary still life work of art.
