Years of painting the CITYSCAPES IN NOIR series has made the perspective I’ve concentrated on to focus most of the paintings downward into a city of streets, corners and colors, with occasional peeks at the sky through the towering shapes of the buildings that form the surroundings or as a background to signposts and the structures.

FRAGMENTS looks to separate from this style of painting by casting the viewer’s eye skyward.

The use of aesthetically dramatic cloud formations as the central feature in the paintings, accompanied by fragments of man-made structures that occupy a small portion of the painting, attempts to create a space where the viewer can focus on the abstract shapes, vibrant colors and natural complexity of the sky sans the complete obstruction of man’s world.
