Abstract Floral Paintings

These floral paintings are explosions of color. They are very complex, often cramming three or four layers of loosely drawn organic patterns into the flat space of a medium-sized canvas. The overlapping, colorful forms refuse to create a deep space. Even the negative spaces are animated and intense. Fragmented, covered with heavily outlined shapes and textured with heavy imposto, these paintings are organic synthetic cubism. They are art that has both structure and passion.

While very calculated and controlled in their form and color, these floral images are nevertheless fresh, spontaneous and lyrical. Most of all, they are splendors of color.
