    Art Description:

    Red Search is a unique painting, only one of 2 or 3 where I used an oil/alkyd mix with my oil paint to enhance the sheen and drying speed. Very toxic and intended only for industrial use; I quickly gave up on using this mix. Nonetheless the luster and translucency is sumptuous. The degree of opaqueness and speed of the hatch-marks is what helped me give the painting its title, as though some genome search was going on.

    Medium Used: Oil on Canvas

    Artist Statement: Principles of elements - painting, sculpture, work on paper; After many years of practice I trust a degree of empathy and understanding have found lodging in me. I am intrigued with the idea of approximations, even approximations of other approximations. I see this all the time as we relate one thing or another to each other. Although a work of mine may start with an initial idea I am always certain it is going to change, evolve and go through permutations that may or may not resemble the initial idea. It's exactly this phenomena, this discovery that intrigues me. Crafting work confidently and coherently is my ambition, so when viewed it can be accessible; intuitively and subjectively understood.
