The work engages both complementary hues and opposing values of subtle layers of color and movement, which often references people, although my work does not rely on these descriptive elements and remains basically abstract.
The work has subtle historic references from Rothko, Frankenthaler, and Still as well as appropriating ideas and thoughts from modern masters like Gerhard Richter, Ross Bleckner, and Sean Scully and has been compared to works by Kandinsky and Paladino.
