Selected Watercolors / Drawings 1993 - 1996
"The key hole image, open and inviting, resonates with meanings. This image could be interpreted in various ways, as a serious sexual innuendo, or, a teasing picture. Perhaps beyond the key hole, which could open into a closet, there is a tenebrous darkness of, perhaps, Professor Hawking's dark crumbling holes. The hole is not black, but built with glazes into a pit in which colours collapse and die. It is good that the painter leaves us on the horns of, what I would call, ambiguity. What is apparent is that the painter does not have a straightforward story, but a possible secret too deep for paint even. Since he has thrown the key to the lock away, we must allow him his defiance."
