From Rhythm to Form


My series of abstract paintings titled “From Rhythm to Form” began when I started to use thinned acrylic paint as color stains to form a central atmospheric shape.

These "Centers," existing at first as fields of pure color emerging from an undefined ground, would then be shaped by semi-opaque passages of paint where the texture and dramatic gesture of the surrounding strokes would contrast with the smooth effect of the stain.  In relating these circular motifs to the rectangular format, I am involved in how the spatial effect of colors, their placement and sequence, lets the painting breathe and transforms it into an imaginary space where the power of suggestion resides in the expressive capacity of color and form.
