About the artist...
I use the language of painting to express a deeper perception of time, place, and the complexities of emotional and cognitive associations we make with our world. My paintings materialize from the convergence of frenetic energy, urban grit, nature, light, shadow, obsession, anxiety, meditation, history, memory, and a pure visceral response to both these physical and psychological places.
"At the very core of my artistic interests lies an unrelenting belief that abstraction enables not just the maker, but also the viewer to perceive and experience another level of consciousness. For me the creation of the work relies on a balance of my experiences and observations from both inside and outside of the studio. An almost alchemical process of extracting ingredients from the external material world and filtering them through the fluid internal psyche."
