“I am above all attracted to form – specifically the human form and the ways in which light interacts with, enhances, and plays against it. Light is an equal participant in my drawings and paintings: a clear and assertive entity. A love for the relationship between light and form, a strong sense of design/composition, and an understanding of the power of color, are at the core of my process. ” – CF
