Abstract

The artist's statement: Roads, trails and paths connect places and ideas that are separated by distance. They are physical paths which can be seen. Pathways are a conduit for our inner lives of thoughts and emotions. Many of my current oil paintings start with the idea of place. I grew up imagining this red road, both symbolic and of actual paths traveled on and near Creed Farm in Bellvue, Colorado. Sometimes the road is bright and clear, and at other times it is muted or obscure. Either way, the journey is better when encountering other fascinating beings along the way. The elements that attract me as a viewer, and my work as a creator, are line, contrast, color, repetition of shapes, and texture. My work does not intend atmospheric perspective in a naturalistic way, rather, I tell the story with contrast and color and line. In my weaving and surface designs I especially like enigmatic patterns, reiterating shapes, and tactile-inviting textures. Special thanks to the Creed family for allowing me to visit their farm.
