I characterize my artwork as lyrical. The root of my effort is an honest and coherent expression of a personal ideal. I conceive with eyes closed and brush extended with no concern other than the release of paint. The visual result are forms that grant me an audience, not the other way around.
My paintings tell stories. Many of them tell more than just one. My compositions feature representational figures and other images; highly modeled, abstracted or gestural to keep the story alive. My images are not bound to a particular subject or iconography. They are free to explore any number and variety of themes, from origination to well beyond execution. My role is to attend to these images.
I desire a meaningful endeavor, above all else. As such, my bold palette and my flexible technique both support and challenge my intentions. Working with several paintings at once, I freely share my colorful concoctions between them. Likewise, my varied use of paint will address the individual needs of different images. Then, I may find those very accommodations reveal unforeseen and surprising counter-intentions. It is just this flexibility that often creates a maze of sudden and astonishing interplay, through which I must resolutely journey or else forsake the entire story. Again, it is the same flexibility that culminates all my effort into completion and the meaning I so desire.
My images, and our dialogue, feed my spirit. I welcome you, the witness, to look, feast and enjoy.
