My artwork is about place, where we reside and how that place resides in us. I am drawn to ruins. People, things we make, and places that time has exacted a toll on serve as reminders of both the reality of timeless elements alive in the here and now as well as the mythic quality of our lives, the stories we continually build up and tear down.
Relying on direct observation and the subconscious, I strive to interpret the landscape and some of the characters inhabiting it. Private narratives occur while in the process of creating images and accompany them and grow with them until the image is complete. Afterward they are often lost or lose import, leaving the image as a residue of the experience.
The benefits that result from this activity are immutable, but I imagine some understanding of the mysteries of the world might result from it.
