    Art Description:

    Impossible to Calculate or Measure comes from the definition of infinity. It is a large scale improvisational meditation on " the dark' i.e. that ambiguous space created by the absence of light where are imaginations fill in the blanks. The painting is Minimal in that there is very little color except deep tobacco browns and broken asphalt blacks. There is no subject or central focus except for the sweeping gestures and dripping paint. However it packs an impact in its restless ambivalence between forms appearing and retreating. the title could be easily interchanged with the Shakespeare quote, "To sleep perchance to dream."

    A body of work should not be a cadaver evidencing life that was but rather the flash-point for life which ignites anew on each renewed encounter.
