Artist statement: 

Born in Montreal, a duel citizen of the US and Canada, I my time has been shifted  between living and working in these 2 countries, spent childhood summers in Vermont, then returned to Vermont 30 years ago to paint each summer, painting the figure in narrative cycles was the focus of my career for decades and my work has been  exhibited widely in Canada and the USA and Europe.

My work of the past 10 years shifted away from the figure into landscape paintings based on plein air studies which I make in Vermont where I spend summers.

My training in New York city in the years following post abstract expressionism has reappeared with the incorporation of gestural brush-work . Other influences of these new landscape paintings has been a number of  trips to Asia in this time, as well as a growing interest in Buddhist philosophy.

Inventing a way to combine my concentration on Western art history with the philosophical methodology of Chinese scroll landscapes has been the substance of the work I am presenting. These paintings present a dialogue on the process of painting itself, from the experience and documentation of the subject, to the refining process of the final paintings.

Through studies, I am not looking for the transcendence of sky, but rather, to move into the complex and endlessly changing spaces that exist close to the ground. The narrow waters that make their way through and over the brush and stone of the forest floor, continually changing and adapting moment to moment is the subject of the research. By eliminating both an obvious horizon line, and by working large format, my work becomes immersive- enveloping the viewer.

`Bringing these works to completion in my studio is a far more arduous journey, a process of elimination, collage and reconsideration, of finding balance, rhythm and a sense of space and dappled light that is sometimes blinding,

This work is an attempt to describe the place where life ever changing—enervating, alive—yet seems also, to remain an unchanging and reassuring point of stability.
