Artist Statement
These works are composed with handmade pigments-a ferromagnetic material which is colored and then cast on linen backed by a magnetic field.  Each piece has a unique color play. The paintings have actual magnetic lines that run through the pigments before they are fixed.  The resulting image is like a fossil of energy patterns arranged in color and form across the plane.  When all of the materials are ready, I get one shot to compose the image.  There are more in this series available for viewing upon request.
