Statement

“My paintings are pictorial orchestrations — views of an alternate interior reality that are sewn together from daily observations, memories, impressions of the world at large, and my imagination. They are a prismatic lens through which I can re-view the world, and a transcription of what I encounter there.

The images that inform my work are like time travelers, moving through the stratified space of the collective subconscious, and they carry associative luggage. I would like to suggest that images have lives of their own. If they happen to become part of a painting, they are not permanent fixtures – they are free agents. They can appear and disappear, migrate, learn new languages, transpose their identities. They respond to the same tidal forces of change that affect us all.”
