In "Matter of Color", I try to integrate the tension between opposing principles within each painting.

In most of these paintings, I choose color as the starting point and let it set the tone. My love of Nature is a "Matter of Color": It is in these colors that I express it. As colors interact they create a dynamic, suggesting movement, life.
If I do introduce linear definition I make it come in second. Its message may be different and it may disagree with the dominant color. Thus, linear definition acts as a spoiler to the interplay of colors--or does it?

To me, the interaction between colors and lines creates a tension similar to the tension between Nature and Technology, or impulse and analysis, or matter and mind.
