Card
„Transparency is the key to the visual effect. The process of layering transparent paint plays with the formal constraints of painting. Geometric forms are perceived as flat, like the picture plane and are also perceived as volumetric, allowing the eye to enter to the focal center or nucleus of the complex polyhedral construction. Passage or the linkage of planes, which occurs with the layering, allows the viewer to perceive geometries as both self-contained and constantly shifting. The comprehension of form is linear and concrete, yet translucent and tenuous. These oppositions reveal the structure as process; and process, in turn, is inseparable from time. Time makes the concept of physical and spiritual transport complete! My intent was to shatter the opaque picture plane and break through to a suggestion, at least, of infinity in glorious color creating images of totality, images that are optical and energetic--not a signal or transmitter, or point of reception of something else – but objects, things, states of mind, visions, expressions that stand for what they are in and of their own unique selves.”
