I first experimented with this series of paintings, using the human figure as the dominant element in an all over pattern while living in Mexico, 1978 - 1979. The figure creates the shapes, the forms, the tensions and the emotions as the model shifts and moves through the surrounding objects and scenery. By incorporating light changes, which occur with the use of natural light, there is a three-dimensional quality in the paintings, as opposed to a purely flat pattern.
