Water Works, Artist's Statement

"Water" is the theme of my new work.

While exploring the characteristics of water by line, color, depth and speed, I'm more aware of the poetic and philosophical analogy to a symbol of life - the fluid of existence.

Water is current, up to date, always new - timeless. The movement or current of water projects an emotional image and perhaps a related response by the viewer. Like life, water can be serene and peaceful, turbulent and confusing, deep and foreboding or shallow and steady. It's these dynamic complexities that challenge the viewer in each painting.
