Statement

NATURE, however we regard it, as God, or random coincidence, we know it as Mother-- and man, the child, can do nothing but act his part-- to imitate and follow his nature. This impulse manifests as brutal self interest in the government of men, as the motivator to strive upward, to survive and conquer-- and in the artist as observer and recorder.

Beauty is but a happy by-product, and its level of quality is a measure of the man’s aesthetic appreciation.

My art is repelled and fascinated by this duality and strives to reconcile the opposite natures of man. I believe the responsibility of art is not ornament but correction. To visualize our folly and point to salvation. The artist is the canary in the mineshaft, the foremost perceiver of the present and the future, and if the future is to be calamity, then to him falls the responsibility to raise the alarm. My work tries to accurately reflect our degree of civilization.
