Coal Train - 30" x 92"
My perspective as an architect is that of moving through space. Essential to this is the passage of time; Perception, Realization and Reflection.
Every painting needs to present its unique presence; an image of artistic PERCEPTION as experienced by the painter.
The REALIZATION of passing existence, when subject and viewer move into and then out of focus transcends a sense of ordinary space and time; the sense that here is here...and now is now, as asserted by Edward Hopper: “The sacredness of everyday fact”.
Selected REFLECTION, painting en passant, supplies inspiration and reference material for recent paintings; incidental, fleeting and complete. This is to say, life passing by, nothing more and nothing less.
"We're captive on a carousel of time..."
