Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Remembering how I dripped pomegranate juice onto my newly cleaned and painted saddle shoes in high school... Two of my all-time favorite things, pomegranates and my saddle shoes, made an accidental striking visual display that day.
The painting is done on primed unstretched canvas on the wall, and then stretched and gallery wrapped over a custom stretcher frame.
I do not frame my paintings when they show because I like the minimal organic effect of them floating on the wall. If additional framing is desired, I would recommend a floater frame leaving a pace of 1/4" to 3/8" inches from the edges.

Artist Profile

Born: 1946

Hometown: El Prado, New Mexico

Based in: Sausalito, California

I was born in Shanghai, grew up in Hong Kong before I traveled to the United States to continue my education. I received a Bachelor and a Masters Degree in Art from the Californian State University. I am a painter, print-maker and performance artist dividing my time living and working in Taos, New Mexico, and Sausalito, California. Since my first solo show at the legendary Lucien Labaudt Gallery in San Francisco in 1970, my works have shown internationally and are represented in numerous private , corporate and public collections.

I am a reductive abstract painter. In work as in life, I am drawn to distillation and simplification. I am inspired by live experiences and observations, real and imagined, the everyday mundane, as well as the otherworldly esoteric. My paintings spring from a restive desire to energize that which becomes stuck, and to stir up ripples and make waves... When colors and contours impulsively engage dynamically and emphatically, they can capture and illuminate life’s fleeting moments, invite empathy, bridge disparities, reconcile dichotomies, and promise infinite possibilities. This is a practice that is both liberating and restorative; I am grateful to travel its path, and privileged to share it.
