Yet A Moon Embraces Them
22″ x 30″ monotype, 2014.
My monotypes focus on brilliant colors and powerful forms. As the colors play against one another the created shapes develop a life of their own. My interest in classical mythology and poetry contributes to the imagery found in the work. I search for that particular shape that stirs the viewer to recognition and denial. The work is dependent on process and painterly markings which create that visual awareness of content…a merge of the subjective and objective intellect.
