Artist Statement

About the 15 painted drawings I’ve submitted:

These 15 works are drawings concerning industrial design and its visual impact. Buildings, empty warehouses, abandoned barns, highway construction, city streets, and the street sounds are the subject matter of these works.  The flat gestural approach in my work is influenced by the art of the 15th century Russian icons.   

Matisse  saw the paintings of these Russian icons as integral to boundary pushing for new directions in modern art . I have used the design elements of the industrial world to create a modern iconography.
