My art is a way of communicating the resolving of the conflicts that occurs in all our lives. Whether it is a confrontation with another, struggle against the world, or a clash against ourselves; the figurative imagery represents the conflict as it is worked out on paper or canvas. When my work is going well I feel a sense of power and rhythm from the action of drawing, of moving through space with minimal effort and obstruction. No distraction just on to the next move. Much like mastering Tai Chi or some other martial art.
I am constantly searching for the right pose to convey the right body language. I want a certain amount of challenge to the forms, negative space and contour. I try to use colors that have vibrancy. The most important element for me is gesture it is the movement of the line I enjoy most.
