My work as an artist uses color, form and texture to examine change, ambiguity and uncertainty. My work attempts to reveal concepts that may exist behind a perceived reality. I am working to find paths which lead from the visible to a possible internal vision. While I primarily work in acrylic nonobjective painting, I also utilize watercolor, inks, prints, and mixed media. Although I have been stimulated by numerous artists, I have been most influenced by past abstract expressionists including Helen Frankenthaler, Adolph Gotlieb, and Joan Mitchell. As a pediatrician and molecular biologist, much of my inspiration has come from nature, natural forms, and processes of change including differentiation, birth, decomposition, and metamorphosis. I am involved in developing ongoing series of abstract works on paper and other surfaces that explore these processes and questions.
