ARTIST STATEMENT: Extending the tradition of the 20th century modernists, I strive for purity of the art object as I explore the creative process. I aim to have no pre-conceived notion of the finished object. My job, as the artist, is to be aware of the available choices and to make aesthetic decisions. There are a number of concepts I have been working with consistently for over 40 years including: "Available Resources" - I believe there is meaning and purpose to the particular time and space within which I find myself. I use my vision and intuition to select from the physical materials at hand, whether they be found objects from nature, abandoned furniture, purchased items, or "personal found objects" from my own life, including tools and leftovers from previous pieces. I also consider "available resources" to include all the stored learning and skills attained over the years that I bring to each piece. "A Given Environmental Context" is the overall space available and the format that will determine the shape for the object to be created. Limiting my context allows for limitless possibilities of creative expression. I have certain constraints I have established for my work, including the use of only 5 colors, as well as working with certain numbers and grids. I begin each individual piece by creating a new context, for example by building a wooden structure which then becomes the arena for free creative expression. Once the context is set, the object organically takes shape as I make conscious choices in every moment while constructing, assembling and painting. "Collected Moments" are those experiences, both real and imagined, that occur during the construction of the object and become integrated into the piece. Art and Life are not separate. The process is to work, make decisions, and live life.
