Artist Statement 2015 "Bad Girl" started out as a dysfunctional relationship metaphor for chemotherapy, but as I worked on it I realized that it was really about the transformation and healing that I've been going through for the past year (2014-2015) I was diagnosed w/ CA in May 2014 & have been undergoing chemotherapy since then. And while there has been plenty of grieving & crying, side effects & pain, the flip-side to this experience has been wondrous: I'm closer to my wife Donna & my 7 yo son Jonathan; I've developed new friendships; I paint more now than I ever have; I am growing faster as an artist than I ever though possible; I do Qigong as a daily practice; I know myself better; I'm more open to life and love; and everyday I feel grateful to be alive. It's possible to come out of an experience w/CA stronger than when you began. I hope this painting will convey that belief. I've been painting off and on for a long time. I've done mostly abstract, non-representative work that has emphasized color and texture:drip paintings, drip and smear, squeegee and trowel paintings & most recently color-band paintings with oil stick. I've loved doing these paintings. there have been only a few things in my life that have consistently given me as much joy as putting color on canvas or panel.
