Paintings combining my dedication to an abstract/conceptual process  with my new Hudson Valley environment.
My paintings show the tension between landscape painting or alternative reality and minimal abstract art or reductive painting. I use iridescent and various metallic colors which I paint with my fingers, using silicone and acrylic paint. The square format include 4 horizontal sections divided by a deep groove that makes them tridimensional. This format and structure are not really affiliated with landscape painting but more with abstract painting. It shows the tension and complexity of the work. I am repeating a simple  pattern that could refer to an abstract shape, or a cloud, a galaxy or an unknown landscape object. I am an abstract painter adjusting to the Hudson Valley and being influenced by its landscape and history and creating minimal abstract/realistic paintings.
