"Harmony would lose it's attractiveness if it did not have a background of discord"
Georges Seurat once quoted, "Art is Harmony. Harmony is the analogy of opposites, the analogy of similarities of tone, of tint, of line taking account of a dominant and under the influence of the lighting, in combinations that are gay, calm or sad."
Art imitates life in that a balance has to be struck. A certain order in the chaos, an understanding that generates respect and sage guidance to orchestrate the palette. We cannot have one without the other.
These paintings are abstract visual snippets of daily experiences rendered from my subconscious. I start with a random sketch; sometimes suggesting the shape of a vessel, table scene, street scene or figurative interaction. From the sketch, I intuitively decide the light and dark balance which creates a "harmony".
