Near and Far, Now and Then, 1987


The paintings are anything but muscle-bound - a light and omnipresent singing energy, mercurial and phantasmic, rather than the titanic energy often associated with 'major' work. Yet major the recent works undeniably are - in look and effect and address.

Science, A Fine Line, Balance, A Planetary Place

I want to combine the qualities of a small scale picture (delicacy, intimacy) with the spaciousness of large-scale. I am interested in synthesis, both expected and unexpected. In a seamless connection between such things as
                    the personal and impersonal
                    the abstract and the real
                    the scientific and the esoteric
                    the poetic and the mundane.
I would like these paintings to be slow to read so that they are paced in time. A balance of activity and calm.
