"River and Stone I came about quite organically. I wanted to take up the expanse of the canvas with biomorphic shapes and so I began with one shape which led to the next and the next. In creating the piece, I allowed each shape to take on its form in response to those around it. In doing so I found that some shapes wanted to creep around and between others. The effect of this reminded me of water flowing around river stones or the slinking ebb and flow of a tidepool. But what of the colors? Understanding that art resides in the land of subjective interpretation one could ask, are they reflective of the technicolor joy of the natural world or do they mirror the dyes, pigments, and chemicals we discharge into our environment? Are they the echo and reverberation of bird song or are they reminiscent of ocean plastics?"
