My work represents inquiries, observations and narratives that flow in and out of my consciousness.
I use visual metaphor, allegory and magical realism to explore psychological truths and complexities about the human condition.
Distinguishing as well between the serious, the trivial, the tragic and the comic my work searches for ways of displaying oppositions and contradictions as the motivation for a painting.
In contrast to the assertion (and faithfully recording) of one reality, my work investigates how different realities abrade and interact.
These abrasions and interactions start within the medium itself and are revealed in the struggle of the creation of every work. The reality of the picture plane itself then is a record of the inherent problem between the distinction of what reality is reflected, the viewer’s experience of it and the artist’s own problematic relationship with the work.
