My technique is to layer color over color thus creating the optical effects of depth and color change.I have always admired the grandeur and picturesque quality of the European landscape painters. But more recently have become interested in the work of the abstract expressionists of New York in the 50’s and 60’s. More specifically the Color Field painters, such as Mark Rothko, Clifford Still and Helen Frankenthaler. I am particularly interested in the spatial relationships created by line, form and color and their emotional impact on us. I intend to explore these concepts more in the near future.
My aim is to combine these two genres to create a fresh and modern appeal in painting.
