All my life I have been drawing images out of my imagination, without preconceived themes or using any reference material. My work has been described as undefined narratives, relating to human relationships in the context of society. Compositions are filled with figurative gestures, without any attempt to develop a narrative thread, it drives the viewer to find a completed story, however, an unscripted conclusion is what they will find. Title’s to my tales are literary allusions - commentaries, occurring after the paintings are finished and the storyline, to which the title refers is not a factor in the paintings evolution.
I describe my style as illustrative with intellect, sometimes showing opposites through thought and emotion. I try to balance both. I have always enjoyed the Expressionists Movements in art and my work reflects this. My painting technique is traditional. The mediums I use are oils, egg tempera on wood and wood cuts. Distinctive to my paintings are figures running, persons gesturing, eccentric objects, mysterious boxes, and usually one person in the background watching impassively. I lead the eye through a theatrical space walls and stages. Moving the viewer, with head movement, to pointed fingers, to a figure by a peculiar object, enticing the observer to ponder a logical conclusion, when there is none.
Art is an individual’s pursuit and gift of leaving something behind, artist are not immortal. There work can be. Any art worth leaving behind reflects the individual involved, we are all created unique souls, with a story to tell.
