Flower Series, Bennett Medical Center, Stamford CT 2016

These paintings grew out of experimenting with abstraction and combining materials. Organic flower shapes were a natural path towards realism.

By activating a blank canvas with marks and textures, then drawing around and with the drips and splatters, the accidental became primary to the images. My goal was to get as much as possible into these pieces while describing things as minimally as I could. They are part the art collection at the Planetree, or patient centered, Stamford Hospital.
