To paraphrase Bob Dylan, he once said that silence is the thing that people are most afraid of. I want my images to evoke silence. Our lives are filled with constant commotion and confusion. All of the electricity in our lives creates more noise in our ears and our minds. Then you see one of my images and it stops, maybe for just a moment, maybe longer, but for a short time all is quiet. The inner dialogue is still and there is you and nothing. Embrace it!
My works are surreal dimension visualized by my dreams and reveries of warped space and time. In those space and time, there are discoveries of a question, or statement, the meaning of which cannot be understood by rational thinking but may be accessible through intuition or lateral thinking. Through intuitive experimentation of digital photo painting, juxtaposing different elements from different times — ancient and modern, memory and present, myth and reality, my work aims to express the metaphysical existence of life.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your participation in the 2013 Spectrum Miami Art Fair.
I think it was a great first step in identifying ourselves as a serious promoter of high quality art.
We celebrate the opening of our Rochester art space with an art show.
