It is the expanse of thought from earlier twentieth-century Modern art that has been in part an inspiration to my recent painting entitled, The Blue Rider. There is History serving as a discipline and the elements that shape the boundaries of style, vision, repetition, method, and constraint in art. This is the role of suggestibility for our perceptions. Expression is not isolated, limited, or confined to a single notion, or arbitrary method. To escape from the perpetual forces of society, tradition, and attitude would be to escape History itself. A process that is introspectively palpable and its individuated, continual, motivated, thematic, imaginative integration of geometrical configuration with color serves as a vehicle to this discipline.
