Artist's Statement

I am not a realist. The Ocean Series is a Remodernist response to the color-field paintings of Mark Rothko.

These are not paintings of objects. They are not souvenirs of places, and they do not tell stories. They do present a recognizable image, and an illusion of depth. The image consists of the sea, the horizon, and the sky.

This is not the real, physical ocean, or atmosphere - it's a symbol. I propose that, as such,it can be universal.

The central theme in my painting is the search for stillness, the sort of profound and lucid calm that is the result of meditation or contemplation; another main theme is the relationship between humans, the ocean, and the atmosphere. The intent of my work is to create an ambiance where the spiritual dimension of this relationship can be experienced.
