I look back for my inspiration to the classic geometric abstractionists, the Russian avant-garde. I am moved by the idealism of those artists of the revolution and by their amazing versatility and productivity. I try to show that abstract art is universal, passionate, and human. In my prints I use chine collé to add richly varied color to a basic structure or matrix. Structure is important to me. Structure is power. It is passion. On the deepest level, my art mimics nature. Geometry underlies all natural structures. All art is also about art, because it is human.
My use of acrylic on aluminum panels is homage to Blinky Palermo and his final series of paintings, To the People of New York City (1976-77). The imagery in this series of paintings is in part inspired by the Suprematist compositions of Kasimir Malevich.
