Painting, for me, is an exploration of subject matter, content (the ideas the subject matter evokes), design, surface quality (texture) and structure. As some of my training and interest has always been with sculpture, I find my latest 2-D painting work is not only alluding to three-dimensional space, but has slowly grown off the surface of the canvas into actual relief.

My recent paintings, which I like to call "Landstracts", are built up with shapes of foam core board, sometimes up to 5 inches or more above the base canvas. When covered with textured acrylic gels, the images start to look and feel like real rocks and trees; they have a more tactile looking presence. When I ramp up the colors and exaggerate the surface textures with paint, the resulting images take on an intended sensational, super-real appearance. I want the viewer to feel the awesome intensity of the natural world. I also love to include deep "holes" between the objects I am portraying - little caves of mystery and potential escape.
