Artist's Statement - The Primary Series, 2011-2015

In continuing to explore the simplicity of gesture, rhythm, and color of the original Arcs & Bands series, the Primary series evolved as a clearer dialogue with form and color developed. A push/pull dynamic yields muted layers of color with advancing and receding planes. Forms emerge from the brushstroke, interact, disappear and re-appear as a result of sculpting negative and positive space.
