"Cheated" oil on panel
Much of my work as a an artist explores polyphony and texture that are result of many layers of color, symbols and textured brush strokes in different tempo relationships. I began my work as an artist exploring sound in the early 1980‚Äôs. My work as a composer brought me to Seattle in 1988 where I worked and studied with the sound sculptor Trimin for over 12 years. During that time, my work became more and more visual. In 1992, I began to paint with oils on wood. To me, painting, much like music, is a generative process that pulls me along. I take cues from my materials and look at my work as growing organically and directly from my materials.
