LANDSCAPES


Each painting is done on site in the environment. Although there is literal interpretation, it is as if a child like nature intervenes. 
I have been given a ticket, held in a police car for hours until they decided I was not a terrorist, tried to scale a wall to have a proper vantage and given clearance in the night, all to complete a painting. It is adrenalizing work, and I am an addict. 
This work always has me on the edge and vulnerable. The discovery in this body of work changes to the distinctness of the place. Where man is creating industry out of need, there is a compelling beauty in all of it.


"THE SERIES"

This work is a suggestive in its ideas dealing with weight, space, texture and emotion. They are raw and complex, leaving much to explore. Using colors to express the passion.
