My work has an ever-increasing fascination with political and historical themes that define my
own abstract expressionism and have everything to do with the union of concepts theoretically
comparable to Kandinsky. Nevertheless, with a passionate conviction concerning the significance
of space, not as void but as something charged with energy, where forces invisible to the eye are
infinitely important to the total art expression. Herein is the only comparable note of my artform,
in other words, I take the novelty of digital abstraction to another depth where history has no
precedence for my level of artwork that just happens to be digital.
Each work is a consistent progression from lyrical figuration to expressive geometry to free and
brilliant coloration with atmospheric depth. The work is intuitive but deliberate. There are no
accidental events and color is its own personality playing in shapes with their curious
interchanges and conflicts that take on a naturalistic association. Most digital artwork can not
attempt to achieve this depth simply by default. It is the artist who creates not the tool. We are
not discussing random use of simplistic software shapes and shades to sell prints, rather the
directed manipulation of composition, color and form from knowledge acquired from a lifetime
of exposure to art, history, literature and travel. I am a truly worldly and experienced artist.
