Even though the digital photographs of my paintings from 1998 through 2002 are so low-res, my memories of those hard-edged geometric compositions and decisive colors are sharp and clear.

This piece is a way of simultaneously looking back and also looking forward, I’ve been recapitulating and recapturing the raw energy and freeing it up even more than before, feeling inspired and also liberated by the fact of having completed several hundred of these types of pieces over the years (almost 700 paintings total, about half of these falling into the category of geometric abstractions)

And having worked out these nine new pieces this winter and early spring, I feel the energy and momentum to continue with this re-entry into the series.

So if I look back on these titles, and the pieces themselves, it’s gone beyond my previous concepts of Orders Of Magnitude, Ornaments Of Logic, and Urban Legends, and this series is simply encapsulated by the title of our upcoming exhibition

Driven To Abstraction
