Abstraction and realism share a common ability to evoke space and texture. These paintings are composed so that visual densities – textural knots – move and shift across the surface. Within this general framework, personal experiences, objects and places that hold special meaning are rendered in detail – a process akin to devotion. I was deeply influenced by the resurgence of representational
painting during the years of the East Village art scene in New York in the 1980s. Subsequently, I wrote
a book, Abstract Painting: Concepts and Techniques, that strengthened an impulse to integrate abstract
painting concepts with realism.
