collection of the artist

Infinity Series began in 2005 as a desire to seek out pure line formations. I had been playing with and using various plaster materials for years with my art restoration business and transferred a color base to a surface and integrated layers of raw mineral pigment into the semi wet plaster - similar to fresco painting.
Layers of thin pigment and plaster create a multi-demensional composition with bold top coats mingling with subtle underlayering of line, color and suface texture.
Working large scale increased the need to approach this work in a physical manner in order to produce the multiple sweeping gestures and application of plaster.
