"Painting for me is about light, memory, and the senses. It is also about contagion of shapes and forms, horizontal and vertical stability, rhythms, overlaps, repetitions, variations, juxtapositions, contiguities, ambiguities, clarity, tonal contrasts, volume, textures, color assemblies, and geometrics that catch the light. It is more a mental construct screened through temperament, rather than a naturalistic rendition."
Lennox's wonderful architectural paintings of our neighboring river towns are striking in their design and use of color and light. There is an interesting juxtaposition of the antique buildings with a somewhat modern, quiet presentation which will remind many of Hopper.
