Coming from a background of realism, playing with POP Art & Abstract Expressionism in the 60’s, I became interested in trying to combine all styles in my own way, Abstract Realism came about. Having an inquisitive mind and being a voracious reader, visual word play and symbolism evolved in my work. In trying to initiate a dialogue with the viewer the marks of the creative process became as important as the image. Seducing the viewer with a visual pleasing and engaging surface.The juxtaposition of objects, movement and marks to involve ones subconscious in an inner dialogue. Consciously leaving an open ended image to allow the viewers history to add to the impact of the image, and hopefully an ever changing response.
