From the artist:
My paintings are figural. Narrative in structure and unapologetically personal. I pay attention to biological motivation and the imprint of mythology and western culture on individual perception and behavior. The larger works are exploded views of my investigation. The smaller paintings and objects are punctuations that can stand alone or be woven into context of the larger work.
With respect to technique and color language, I feel an attraction to oil paint and the palpable way it can bring thought into material. My approach fluctuates between making wild marks and meticulous planning. Somewhere in the middle lies my personal mythology.
For me these embedded images invite empathetic looks, and provide a playground for interaction between myself and the viewer. When shared and experienced in this way, our personal stories become more universal and quite revealing.
