This show is composed of paintings ranging from 2009 to 2017, all of which are inclusive of an underlying theme.  This is revealed by the overall 'flowing' nature of the linear forms embedded within most of the compositions.  In some paintings such as 'Sea Change' it's obvious in the dynamic forms (as well as in the title). In this piece, as in some others, the subject is a clear reference to water.  In others such as 'El Paso' the leitmotif is far more subtle and static where the subject is left open to interpretation.  Then there is 'Opening Theme' which contains a different kind of flowing - a sublime reference to music. Ultimately what provides this show with its push/pull tension is a variety of components: the dynamic versus the static forms, the range of colors and tones between the paintings and within them but also the span of years that these painting encompass.
