Statement

The liberation of letterforms from their recognized social function is the foundation for my abstract paintings. The new forms I create, allow me to explore the conflict between external and internal expectations in our personal lives. By painting bold, large, graphic, simple and colorful abstractions of letterforms, I highlight the boundaries that shape our feelings, self-image, and our relationship with the world.

These abstractions are a metaphor for our human landscape. The shapes and edges are expressions of vulnerability and pain in the search for intimacy.

We are all trying to discover who we are in a society that projects personal success in terms of position, wealth and looks. In reality, those things have nothing to do with who we are or want to be. It is in those moments of tension against what is told to us and what we know is true that I find the inspiration for what I do.
