This work should be considered within the historical
perspective of Expressionism and early Abstract
Expressionism. It is those formalizing, conceptual ideas
of the artists of those times that illustrate and
identify this art as an environmental/atmospheric
extension of the perspective of Wassilsy Kandinsky and
some of those that followed.
The images show that the works of this artist have an
important essence of an organized exploration of light
and colored atmospheres within the classical
expressionistic values of the early abstract
The historical illustrations encompassing those same
elements influence the images comprising this artistís
work. One should consider what has been said about
Expressionism, Abstract Expressionism and statements of Kandinsky and Paul Klee reflecting their concern for the
abstract, as the foundations for this artistís point of
view and expression.
Space here does not allow any analysis of those ideas;
however, because of the personalities and environments
of those artists, which influenced and shaped their art,
and their personal philosophies about their art the act
of creation in turn certainly influences this artist.
The paintings display that the relationships of early
Abstract Expressionism and the images of this artist
have common aesthetics. Expressionism, Abstract
Expressionism and the visual ideas of Kandinsky and Klee
influenced art, artists, this artist, and, in this new
age, Abstract Expressionism is alive and well, albeit,
stilted, by this artist to an atmospheric image.
