Artist Statement -

My paintings follow very much in the long established tradition of the Expressionists, using intensity of color and gestural brushstrokes to portray the intensity of feeling and emotion. While also attempting to find a balance between art and today’s technology, I am integrating digital imagery into my pieces, using them as a tool to enhance subject matter. These paintings/drawings are developed from personal and emotional feelings that are sparked by the day-to-day experiences of a father, husband, employee, son and general spectator of the modern world. They are not formed as judgement statements but constructed out of a reactionary consciousness to the particular subject matter. The plan is to portray that secret level of honesty that is often misinterpreted as cynicism, by taking a specific person, place or thing and turning it into a thought provoking generality in which the viewer can use their own lives to draw a conclusion.
