Om, silver. 2010. with artist Marta Baricsa
"Your work appears to be quite fine, better than much of the pure abstraction we see here."
Ethan Karp, OK Harris Works of Art. NY
"Your minimal use of bold color is particularly striking in conjunction with your neutral palette"
Lisa Dorin, Assistant Curator. Williams College Museum of Art. MA
"I consider myself a Directivist and I paint with deliberate intent.
The works are direct fluid movement that stem immediately from a source.
They can be linear or sculptural - concrete or random in composition.
I use minimal brushwork and the purist clean, clear paint.
Done with no corrections and only over painting where it is intended.
Because it is exact as it is meant to be."
