From the artist:
My art deals with figures and environments. I incorporate images of people, animals, and landscapes to create visual narratives. The ideas: progression, time, and movement influence my work. I feel that art should possess skill as well as a reason. When I create art I think about deconstructing form. I paint like a sculptor. By thinking in the round I am able to create a complex composition. I consider the different planes in space. The concept of breaking form down and reconfiguring it is integral to my drawing and painting.
The subject matter in my art is reactionary to my concerns with the world and things going on around me. Psychological tension is an important factor in my painting and drawing that helps engage the viewer. The viewer should question what is going in my artwork. By creating in a surrealist fashion my pieces can change and layer. There is a certain autonomy that occurs. The concept of the dream state and the unconscious mind is very important. By viewing my work collectively a greater plot arises. Cubist and surrealist notions heavily influence me. Classical artwork, including baroque, art is important to me.
