Birth year


contemporary, realism, abstract


My work is an attempt to capture the essence and energy of the objects I portray. I depict the form large and cropped, creating a type of realistic abstraction in a manner similar to the floral paintings of Georgia O'Keeffe. The technique I have developed I have named "Perceptionism" which is defined as follows:

A "Perceptionist" removes objects from a conventional or stereotypical viewpoint and re-creates the form focusing on its inherent value and beauty.

I portray valueless, discarded materials enlarged and transformed to capture the objects unique form, color, space and energy, conveying in paint the pure essence of its inherent chromatic, structural and aesthetic attributes, in a form of abstract realism.

So called "valueless remnants", scars of the material world, are recycled into an ideal physical beauty which leads the viewer into a new, imaginative, artistic truth by engaging in an intellectual perception of a more metaphysical understanding.

Realistic renderings become an array of simplified shapes of color and abstract patterns in a compositionally arranged painting that conveys the obscure entity of the subject.

The psychoanalytic meaning behind these Perceptionist art creations is that all of creation, however altered, has an inherent beauty and value of its own.
