I've been working on a series of paintings collectively called Tone Poems; an idea borrowed from the classical music form that evokes a particular place, scenario, or event. My work often describes the memory of places or occurrences that involve sounds, weather and the circumstances of light. I use musical score lines in these compositions as the foundational structure that appears and disappears as marks and shapes interact with them. As a painter, this approach enables me to play with a wide range of energies that are manifested as visual rhythms, tempos, or spatial dynamics.
