Artist Statement

These recent works are part of an ongoing series, which often features an "Everyman" character, who exists in invented painterly terrains. It is an alternate dream-like world that mirrors back to us the difficulties of daily existence and unspoken longings. And, although I’ve chosen to depict a particular model, there is an element of autobiography in many of the paintings.

Recurring themes emerge; work, isolation, stress, searching, anticipation, and caring, and I believe many people in our times can identify with them. The paintings are idiosyncratic and I attempt to execute them with empathy towards the human condition.

Through imagination, playful creation of abstracted spaces, and color composition, I attempt to show an inner world that is mysterious, somehow noble, and non-linear – as dreams and life often are.
