Statement

My artworks are animations of sweeping impasto brushstrokes, creating a surface of tension, a paradox of visual emotions and concerns. They create forms that facilitate depth and uncanny synthesis within the compositions: strong forms, bending edges, and expressive discordant surfaces; narratives captivating, scintillating, and conjuring heightened emotions. I explore life’s contradictions, realities and bare emotions. Often my themes are combinations of mundane objects, juxtaposed in whimsical scenario but formally unified with adherence to form and shape. A surreal quality surfaces suggesting notions of agitation and motion, with the materials and processes consistently linked by recurring formal concerns and subject matter. Mine is a pictorial style with the focus not on objective representation but on a personalized imagery that expresses emotions and impressionability.

The paint is naive, thick, and viscous it adheres, coagulates, and congeals across the igneous blank canvas.  In its wake compositions emerge; forms move and dominate space rich in color; texture develops into environments real or fabricated; into animations of synergy.

The overture is sometimes foreboding; its source and message driven by manipulation, characters mirrored, masked, and disguised as manmade objects; portraits and emotional issues exploited.

My painting communicates the elements of tension and resolve; thickly exaggerated, agitated gestures that expose the materials and surface of the paint.  I draw my inspiration from the external environment and my internal awareness.  The style depicts sharp circumstances and consequences, as tensions between attraction and repulsion confronts the observer, the dialogue results in a visual copulation, where fabrication amplifies the visual consciousness.

Goals as a Painter

My artistic endeavors are always to perfect my craft with recognition, to be outstanding and part of the history of art.  I paint to transmit my personal quest.  I am a visual “Storyteller” uniting my art and my spirit.  I speak through my materials and processes to transform my inner concepts into a visual narrative with the paint surface as my storyboard. 

Audience engagement is essential to the success of my experience.  I accomplish this through active engagement and participation in gallery exhibitions, art venues, and advertising my professional capabilities and enthusiasm.
