Artist Statement

The urban landscape with its man-made structures confronts us all the time. We live, work, and play in it, but it’s so ordinary that we often don’t really see it. Our eyes take it in, but nothing registers internally, perhaps because the urban landscape seems rather unremarkable. With so many of these urban visual images continually flowing through our consciousness, we don’t see that there is more there. My interest is in making the unremarkable remarkable.

What a fascinating place the urban landscape is, with its intersection of architectural shapes, light, and color. Using these elements, I strive to create a structure within an image that’s especially satisfying. Sometimes the scene is mostly geometrical, consisting of trapezoids, rectangles, triangles, and circles. Sometimes it’s sweeping curves punctuated by straight lines and smooth gradations of light.

The interplay of these forms moves the eye to sense the interrelatedness of all of the shapes. The repetition of identical elements points, consolidates, and directs the eye toward other interesting elements. The shapes all vie for position, all want to take center stage, yet are unable to move. But the eye can move, the eye can see the relationships, and the eye can pull the image together into a whole.
