Exhibition Dates: October 7 through November 18



This series of paintings is based in part on the enigmatic idea of the Jungian theory of the shadow, that is, shadow as an enigma of perceptual existence, and the idea of shadow perceived and signified in the pictorial process

The Ghost Shadow series can best be described as reductive, hard-edge paintings, derived from a painterly process. Each painting has densely built up horizontal color bands of equal size. Graphically, each band holds rich, pure color next to another band, creating color vibration as well as a spatial relationship. This geometric division in thirds lends itself to a purity in balance letting the paintings bold and muted colors play off one another just as in the way light plays off of all things perceived.

The paintings function on many levels from pure flat abstraction or suggestions of landscape, to a pragmatic approach in graphic design and color theory. In a deeper sense, the paintings should illuminate subtle color and light interaction and sensation, creating a mood or feeling that is almost sculptural.
