overview

I wanted to create my own language; this is how it began and felt myself a mirror; using painting, drawing, murals, mixed media. Although the visual vocabulary has changed it still is how I converse best of those dark and light places; reflect back into nature.

I can remember from the smallest age being greatly effected by light; through the trees, down a hallway, in a someone’s eyes, a star above.

It’s just about seeing.

I work primarily in oils, on several pieces consecutively; as if conducting an orchestra of various sounds and beats.
Music is a great influence on my work and many times has shown me the way to the next stroke. I want to create a painting that you can hear; the thunder, the wind, the dance, the rhythm; the soul.

The foundation of composition in a painting like “Chairs in Love” anchors a seemingly commonplace form to convey meaning that transcends lawn chairs to the centered heart amongst askew objects. The contrast of taking such simple objects to compose something as meaningful as passion, love, life and death continues to fascinate me.

Murals like the Palio dyptich; thread visual notes of color and form.

Anselm Keifer, Giotto, Piero della Francesca, and Howard Hodgkin are usually who first come to mind when I think of other painters.

The energy, the joy, the pathos, the foundation of visual architectuality; is my current focus.
