While often first appearing as a solid image, each painting soon reveals itself to be an aggregate composed of disjunctive spaces and teetering times. What is at stake is a new definition of the verb "to abstract" -- one that embraces construction and invention rather than distillation of what already exists. The paintings emphasize the fragile - even delirious - attempt of any form to adequately contain a single faceted reality. Colors flirt and go for walks. Sensations build, multiply and flow.
