When I paint, I very clearly work within the boundaries of the frame, relying maybe too much on the confinement of my image within the dimensions of its size. In only one painting I suggest reaching beyond the edge. Instead, I work into the painting, multiplying boundaries, redefining the relationships between them. I create my own hierarchy within a painting. The sizes, colors and relations of the shapes within the boundaries create a scale. Maybe that is why I entitled it "Urban Environments", because it creates an internal structure--one that I saw as mimicking a hierarchical social structure. Therefore the median I found between choosing the square on a test and trying to "let myself go" was by letting myself go using the square. Nice, huh? Although my approach may be analytical it isn't cerebral. A conscious disclaimer, maybe that's what I'll call this paper, yeah . . . I like that . . .
