Letterform and abstraction are the primary ingredients used to construct my paintings. Victorian fonts are used for their broadside optimism while Gothic and Germanic types provide a darker - authoritarian- more cryptic quality.The arrangements are customized through a process of shifting, adding, editing and repairing. The goal - to find poignant/poetic relationships between font and form. That process also aides in visually grounding the text in the overall architecture. I'm continually fascinated how dedication to the handmade quality of the work gives rise to a radiance which appears elevated by the depth of the artists belief.
