Curator’s Comment:


I’m drawn to this piece because it’s a curious hybrid of spatial elements within a decorative motif.  Your works generally speaking have a wonderful use of expressive color and undulating movement, and this piece is no exception.  But the elimination of the horizon line pushes it further from a traditional landscapes orientation, and into purely organic figuration.  There’s a robust, assertive arrangement to the roses- nothing delicate or equivocal. The more I look at the piece I’m thinking it possesses a hedonistic attribute- a wealth of luxuriant open blooms, set off in bold complementary hues. The extreme contrast of value is also unusual for the subject.  The deep pockets of blue-black and violet set off the red shadows as hot, glowing halos of light.  I enjoy several of your more abstract landscapes for their intensified space and color.  Unlike landscapes that are reminiscent of a particular time and space, your works are radiant environments unto themselves.
