Echoes

This series of paintings explores the idea of echos, the acoustic reflections that follow one original sound. The initial mark is the catalyst for the next and so on, but none will ever be the same as the first. Like a drop on the surface of water, each ripple that follows is similar—yet different. Each mark of paint is different, following the previous notes, like noise across a valley or a shout across a lake. Every shape is simple and direct; images are bold and immediate; paint is translucent and expressive. The result creates harmony from disharmony, balance amid what some may construe as disorder.
