There is a conscious quality of the subversive in my work. Through the paintings, I lure the viewer into a dialogue by evoking a sensual world of color, stillness, and light. It is a world where constructed beauty is an element that mediates a conversation on the nature of truth, or perhaps my truth. I make paintings where content is revealed slowly through a complex relationship of form and subject. This is a very demanding form of visual communication that expects a great deal of the viewer. I believe the best reward you can offer in payment for the generosity of one willing to enter this dialogue is an engagement with meaning.
