Winter Tropic 2000

oil 18 x 23 inches  

My landscapes explore the effects of color and light by pulling together a combination of artistic genres. They move from impressionism, (Pierre Bonnard), to abstract expressionism, (Mark Rothko and Joan Mitchell), and beyond. The idea is to forge a new type of colorfield landscape that takes the theme of the road as an entry both into the work and into dream. The works are all real places, that in viewing them, quietly reveal their location’s distinctive mark as well as being a point of departure into something beyond the real and completely of its own. I draw on the vibrant palette and light of the Caribbean, (where I was born), and South America, (where I grew up), as well as the grayer tones and subtle colors of North America. In doing so, a unified landscape both in theme and in color, is created, delivering along its roads, a sense of peace and a sense of hope within the dream.

I recently had a very successful exhibition at Cuenca's Museum of Modern Art in Ecuador.  The exhibition coincided with the 23rd anniversary celebration of the museum's inauguration.  The museum purchased one of my pastels for the permanent collection.  In June 2005, I will be included as part of a 20th Century Retrospective of American Landscape at the Royal Academy of Art in Moscow, Russia, and in August, the exhibition will continue at the Royal Academy of Art in St. Petersburg, Russia.
