The Road Series

The paintings in The Road Series are inspired by fleeting images of road travel.  With my windshield as a viewfinder, I observe rectangles of color - semis, billboards, street signs, license plates, earth and sky - as they advance and recede in space.  Those images, when overlapped, produce compositions filled with interesting shifts in scale and color intensity.  I began the series with the Golden Mean as my compositional "map."  Recently my work has transitioned to a more intuitive adherance to that structure, resulting in more fluid lines, looser paint application, and more experimentation with shapes that appear and disappear from the visual field.

Here is The Road Series in chronological order:
