Many people view abstract expressionism works and try to sort out what the artist has viewed and then abstracted, but abstract work is much more complicated than a mere abstraction of reality. My work reflects emotions, similar to fear, joy, and sorrow, but which cannot be adequately put into words, for example, the feel of the sun on your face. My emotions can only be expressed through color and texture. I endeavor, through my work, to awaken within the viewer those subtler emotions, which cannot be named or defined. The harmony the viewer achieves with those undefined emotions when viewing my work should create a sense of thrill at realizing that they a experiencing a moment, a feeling, solely defined for them, which transcends mere words. When my viewer reaches that place, they have achieved harmony with my work and a sense of indefinable joy. They are in harmony with that as yet undefined emotion.
