new work is a mystery to me. In my earlier work I often experimented with
symbols and language, but the recent “Broken Verse” paintings signal a new
direction: in the past, language was often an element in my work, but in the
“Broken Verse” paintings, language is front and center.
painting “Broken Verse”, letters begin to speak to me. My eyes move around
the painting, catching a glimpse of a word here and a phrase there. As my eyes
grab groups of letters, I hear sounds and ideas begin to form. Groups of letters
become thoughts, notes, feelings, memories and pictures. My eyes keep moving
around because the painting is full of voices with many stories to tell.
