In this series, Promises, the imagery of Venice is used to explore the transient nature of life and relationships. The layered work in oil is abstract yet retains the essense of the images which inspired them. Images of grids, gates, hearts and passages symbolize the passing of time, changes in direction, barriers to communication, lost love. The layers of the painting, expressive color and painterly brush strokes combine to evoke a sense of history and transformation.
