    Many people  view abstract expressionism works and try to sort out what the artist has viewed and then abstracted, but abstract work is much more complicated than a mere abstraction of reality. My work reflects an emotions, similar to fear, joy, sorrow, but which which cannot be adequately put into words. My emotions can only be expressed through color and texture. I endeavor through my work to awaken within the viewer those subtler emotions which cannot be named or defined. The harmony the viewer achieves with those undefined motions when viewing my work should create a sense of thrill at realizing they are experiencing a moment, a feeling,  solely defined for them which transcends words. When my viewer reaches that place, they have achieved harmony with my work and a sense of undefinable joy. They are in harmony with that as yet undefined emotion.
