Statement

The dictionary defines Muse as one of the nine daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne, divinities who preside over the arts and inspire mankind.
For my Muse, who inspires my recent work in portraiture, is my model. My working methodology is that of themes or series, for painting, photography and film/video. I will give two examples: Monet worked on themes of light upon different objects at different times of day such as haystacks. Cezanne worked on a subject that he painted over and over again in a constant attempt to record accurately what he sees, to express what he feels and to produce an aesthetically satisfying picture, be it apples or Mont Ste Victoire. I too prefer this method, to work on a subject, or theme in a series, till I feel I have exhausted it. The aesthetic pleasure I get in part happens when I can compare one treatment of a subject that I have painted, photographed, or filmed to that of the same subject over a significant span of time. I make a clear distinction between my methodology and the technique used to create. Art for art sake is the idea that art is not concerned with storytelling, morality, religion, spiritual or intellectual enlightenment but only with its own aesthetic properties of color, form and so on. It is communication by means other than language.
