"Cut Space Series, Composition #34"
Acrylic on Lexan, 36" x 44" , ©2006
"This piece is from the Cut Space Series Composition # 34,
Juxtaposition of parabolic curvature to the integration of a fragmented
ellipse with color usage propel this unit to a fathomable depth and
magnitude in pictorial space. The systems have relationships to nature,
such as in subatomic particles in cloud chambers, and as a joyous
celebration of cosmology. The objective unit of the work appears to be
floating, moving, and/or being rescued by gravitational attractions, or
in corpuscular unity."

"That a complex formalism is contrasted in space by a similar variation in space-time
adds significant clarity to the meaning of the pictorial space. The invariable
extent of fluidity in a rigid mapping and repeated with contrast in color from
primary to secondary colors limits our apperception within the boundaries of the
picture plane. This simple limit controls our window of perception and with speed
of line having directional asymmetric composition involving references to Bezier's
diagrams and curvature properties and straight lines of infinite speed maintaining
the principle of colinearity, thus through a thought recognize an apperception
to an organization of space-time. 'Space-time does not claim existence on its
own, but only as a structural quality of the field.' Page 155, Relativity and
Problem of Space 1961 by the Estate of Albert Einstein."

Statement about my art:
"From the standpoint of art and geometry, quite early on in life I
decided that since I plan to use geometry in my art - then I must know
everything about geometry. Having been fortunate to grow up in a family
of mathematicians, architects and artists as well as being second cousin
to the late Mortimer Leach, Professor, Art Center School, Los Angeles
and author, Lettering For Advertising, 1956 who had had a significant
impact and inspiration for me during my childhood. I have been working
with geometry in my art spanning four decades. As a traditional easel
painter I have encountered numerous sorts of misunderstanding both to
the notion of my work but also to the degree of difficulty in producing
the paintings. The art combines both ancient and modern mathematical
foundations ranging from Pythagoras to Einstein."
