PORTFOLIO STATEMENT n these paintings, I explore boundaries and edges and stretch the space of the two dimesional "page." The last image is from a series "Gridscapes" and the second image on the second row is a "Relaxed Gridscape." I worked on this series for five years and then moved into large, elongated horizontals. These horizontals are focused on a combination of an abstract space and simultaneously, a sense of landscape without a vanishing point or obvious horizon. I return to these formats and continue to stretch the edge!
