Minneapolis- “Glass staircases with steel cable railings; corrugated metal roofs against stucco facades; exteriors of commercial buildings nestled between stainless appliances in kitchens with sleek, wood cabinetry; window views with disappearing city skylines; shelving units with file cabinets underneath steel beams; hallways disappearing through doorways – all are examples of architectural elements which appear as distorted images in my abstract mixed media paintings. Architecture has been the inspiration for my art for over twenty years.
Often I am asked to do site specific work based on a single building or a body of work by an architect. Occasionally, there is reference to the footprint of the building or floor plan.
Exploring the endless possibilities of architectural designs and compositions, without the need to be concerned with the feasibility to actually build these designs, gives me the artistic freedom that architects seldom have. I have enormous respect for architects and their ability to create artistic visions that can be constructed.
My pieces welcome repeated visual engagement and discovery and may be hung either vertically or horizontally, which allows the viewer multiple perspectives and interpretations of the composition.”
