Summer 2009
Nos. 1-20 » Nos. 21-40 » Artist Statement

During the summer months of 2009 I visited the Rockaway Beach seashore in Queens, New York each day at sunset. Some days held a bright orange-pink sky, while others were gray and foreboding.

A keen interest in abstraction, particularly Rothko's bands of color, has informed all my work, incorporating colors and shapes as well as subject matter into my compositions.

Photographing only the water and the sand became a very personal experience, allowing me to create a minimal interpretation of the vast sea and shore before me. Choosing to avoid any sign of human presence, I included only what nature provided. But, all images in this series reflect the central theme of changing light and shifting tides.
