After years of figurative and representational work, based in observational drawing, I have simplified my focus to the line itself.

While faces, trees, and mountains once served as the figurative source from which my line grew, over time I realized my mastery of line no longer demanded the direct and literal representation. Instead, my line evolved to its present state, where it subtly references the most recognizable organic forms. I obsess over line and edge, and their respective relationship on the canvas. My forms now emerge from the layers of line, as a sculptor would let his figures emerge from the marble. I play with depth and perspective and sometimes the layering of forms. My goal is to find a simple vignette that manages to represent the endlessness of organic form. Most of all, I am in constant search of a pleasurable tension between flat fields of color and loose, organic marks and forms.

The line represents everything I have ever drawn. I consider each mark a part of a greater whole. The line that I draw now cannot be separated from the line I drew a year ago, or ten years ago. It is continuous and evolving.
