Curator’s Comments:

I enjoy the winding white vines cutting through the tangled colored variants in Winter Forest: Dogwood. It’s a compact piece visually, offering dense passages of saturated color.  Without a horizon or traditional figure-ground relationship, the foliage is actually quite abstract.  The title clues me into the subject, but the allover surface treatment also functions on a purely formal level.  The larger proportion of yellow and green wash in the bottom right corner breaks up the warmer hue pattern, without anchoring the intertwined stems.  I like seeing the range in your work, from presenting close up views of individual floral elements, to this more expansive approach.  Predominating through your portfolio of paintings seems to be a sustained awareness of tension between order and chaos in nature.  I was very happy to see you’d posted this new work, and hope there’s more to come.
