From the beginning I was drawn to a more minimalist contemporary style of painting and loved many of the contemporary Color Field painters especially Mark Rothko and later Helen Frankenthaler. But I also loved Turner and somehow wanted to combine these. I also liked the idea of working on the edge between reality and abstraction.
In 2005 I began the series Heaven and Earth which originally was planned as a small group of abstract landscape paintings focused on a vertical format to express the vast expanse of the prairie skies with a low horizon line to give a sense of calmness. I very much had the idea of blocks of color which I liked so much in Rothko paintings but I wanted the landscape to emerge as you got closer to the paintings. Heaven and Earth remains an open series, and while I do go off and experiment with other work I still find myself very much drawn to the these sky paintings.
Heaven and Earth is about wide open or limitless space, it is also about a sense of stability and calmness or something you have always know; like going back to a favorite spot you used to go to as a child.
Bravo! Je viens de vous mettre sur mon mur Faceboock, mes amis doivent vous voir....
Je suis touché par votre commentaire sur mes derniers travaux...J'aime aussi beaucoup votre coté minimaliste qui vise juste l'essentiel et déclenche le sentiment d'évasion...a bientôt. Frédéric.
