From the Gallery
My paintings are the interior landscapes of my mind; the figures are archetypes of inner necessity. The paintings happen without a plan. I paint in a stream of consciousness way; letting the work unfold. Then I take a step back and edit the image so it is coherent in its form and idea.
A painting is not done until it resonates mystery. Ideas turn in on themselves. Some shapes are lost entirely in the process of editing. I sometimes scrape paint off, revealing these hidden forms. Because of this process, the meanings become layered and somewhat enigmatic.
My process is intuitive. I let my thoughts take their own shapes. The act of painting is meditative and sublime. I am dedicated to the transcendental value of art.
