I was hiking in the Verdugo Mountains when I saw a flock of birds swarming around a red and white antenna. I was struck by the simple image and the connection between the birds and the waves being transmitted from the tower. When I titled the painting Transmissions #1. I did not know if there would be a #2. It simply felt right to include the number in the title. With each painting I seek to break the subject down to its geometric essence. In the process the reality of the image is fractured and new meanings are revealed. This can be the radiant energy of a bright shining moon, the ebullient feeling inspired by a beautiful sunset or the inner world of a portrait subject’s mind.
I do not use any computers in the process except to adjust and print any photographs that might be used as reference. Much in the same way that an artist used photography in the pre-digital age. My art is sometimes inspired by digital tools but never reliant upon them.
I began painting in 2002 a few years after graduating with a degree in film from Ithaca College, where I also minored in charcoal drawing.
