My paintings and drawings are dedicated to my unending search for the narratives that lie beneath what appears to be the immutable concrete surface of reality. I have experienced that every circumstance has many layers to it. I am trying to achieve the seemingly impossible and contradictory task of painting that which cannot be seen but intuited.I have given up trying to know the one exact“truth”and discovered the pleasure of the mystery.

 

I painting a diffused, soft lyrical style that is meant to mimic the transitory nature of an object or a figure. Many of the paintings are done in black and white in an attempt to bend reality to another perceptual level. Each painting is usually confined to a focus on one or two objects in order to more fully explore they are unique worlds. The scale of the work is small to create a sense of intimacy. These formal elements are there to support my sense of narrative—the soul of my work.
