  • Color shapes my work. I begin by seeing color relationships. In the process of painting, I find conversations between colors. A certain red speaks to a blue and both of them change. My new series of architectural landscapes will open on Oct. 8th in a show, “The Color of Light: Seasons in Portsmouth” at The Banks Gallery in Portsmouth, NH. All of the 20 paintings were conceived as a pairing of two seasons: winter and spring, summer or fall. There is a reductivism to winter, a simplicity that has given me permission to eliminate whatever is non-essential to the image. There will be a full color catalog with an essay by Chris Volpe accompanying this exhibition.
