Statement

 

What does a landscape, a monkey, a cow, a butterfly, and three texting heads have in common? Observers have noticed a doomer (dark, cartoon like playing on the canvas), or a lonely feeling object, in my paintings. My works often represent my environment; a familiar face, or jester’s emotional reality, in mixed-media on canvas, paper, or wood panel, typically done as a series. Each work is a physical embodiment of myself as the body of the whole painting, supported by muddied (industrialized) colors and asymmetrical lines [cityscapes], or as a solitary object floating in the background.

 

In the process I carve-out a small revelation of self. Painting is the most direct language I am interested in using. Like music, the printed word; beauty that is not so apparent, the scratchings, drippings and residue in an abstract, all seem to alter my space and inform my work.

 

The starting point of each painting is an emotional response to a gadget or object, or a magazine photo - a figure in motion or face; that seem to speak or mirror something about us all.

Currently each painting is in dialogue with the one created right before it. The latest series renews the idea about the developing world we live in, and reimagines it through examining the object, nature, and objects that surround the human domain, that obliquely asks what we are: cityscapes/landscapes with water tower prints, windmills, human figures, faces, animals, tech gadgets.
