biographical notes part 5

lyrical abstraction

As a result of all my meanderings in paint, I eventually arrived at a visual mind-space that I consider to be lyrical painting, characterized by or expressing spontaneous, direct feeling. The abstract drawing subtly inhabiting the color fields was becoming more integral to the composition. This balance is my current challenge. This, and capturing an element of mystery as a piece subtly approaches image without becoming anything at all so that the viewer in striving for conceptual meaning is gently turned back to the pure aesthetic experience.
