While I mainly paint plant life and landscapes, such scenery is born into existence with its beauty fully formed and needs no human intervention. As such, there is little meaning in my choosing to paint such motifs as they are.
If we accept that the randomness and irregularity of nature are the source of its beauty, then it is my belief that removal of that randomness, organization into patterned motifs and simple shapes, can lead to something even more refined. It is that which I seek.
