Artist Statement

My art practice is based on exploration and experimentation. I do not adhere to a recognizable style. Rather my method of producing work is informed and finds it's cohesiveness by the colors I use, the forms that I use such as the grid, stripes, triangles, solid blocks of colors, geometric shapes and minimalist tendencies.

Funky Nassau is named after the black, blue and yellow stripes in the lower right side of this painting which are the colors of the Bahamas flag. The title Funky Nassau is also the name of a very popular record of 1971, by the band The Beginning of The End. The Bahamas are also the ancestral home of my husband. We have visited Nassau, which is the capital, Freeport and Turks and Caicos many times. The choice of the colors were not intentional. During the composition of this painting, which is all based on stripes, I went through many different color changes. After finishing the painting, I realized the color combination were the same colors of the Bahamian flag.

This painting is a diptych which consists of two 30" x 40" x 1.5" canvases for a total of 60" x 40" x 1.5", placed one on top of the other or 30" x 80" x 1.5" if placed side by side. It will be shipped in a special custom made box and the two canvases can simply be hung one on top of the other or side by side or they can be attached together with brackets, which I will supply with directions and pre-drilled holes for the brackets.
