“The essential influences on my work have been French Impressionism, and impressionist representation of the effects of light, and American geometric abstraction. Fueled by these interests, my work has evolved from representing the effects of light to painting with light itself.
My ‘light boxes’ are based on translucent light, which has a unique color that is, at the same time, both intensely rich and evanescent – a color that changes as the viewer changes perspective. As a result, the compositions are inherently unstable – mimicking the instability of perception and memory, the dual phenomena on which all of my work is based.”
