"I don't know a rock until I paint it"
A personal journey of discovery, this series of oil paintings entitled Formations features detailed studies of rock specimens found along California coastal areas. Each painting involves a quest to decipher the nuances of rock surfaces and textures in a formal, analytical manner. This concentrated approach to examining various types of patterning brought about by weathering effects on rock materials uncovers an "inner life" of elaborate configurations.
