If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
I am...
an abstract painter who loves bold colour and delights in the movement of paint.
About my artwork
The series of work referred to as Parallel Universes deals with the tension created by the efforts of an earth bound Taurus in dealing with ambiguity. Post Modern time forces us to deal with constant ambiguity in all of life: nothing is set and pre-determined no matter how much many of us wish it were. From gender identification and lack there of, to accommodation of religious beliefs; or a tidy definition of what is art, gives us all pause as we deal with the freedom and globalization of the post modern world.
In each painting there are multiple layers and multiple colours –each representing a “reality” to someone. Some have an abstracted landscape look and others are just emotional abstractions playing with reactions to colour and shapes.

What exhibitions are good at the moment?
I am at my summer studio on an island outpost of Newfoundland so I am out of touch with current exhibits.
