Artists Statement

The physical process of putting paint down, deliberate risk taking, and occurrence of the unexpected in making a painting are all vital to my work process. My choice of subject matter is intuitive, resonating with my aesthetic sensibility in content and look.

The work touches on universal themes as well: alienation, individual will, and the passage of time. Many of the paintings are worked from web surveillance camera images bringing a peculiar distance to the work. It is my hope that the paintings capture the sense of beauty, endurance and resignation that mimics my own vision of life.
