Artist Statement

A good deal of my life I have chosen to spend in silence; this presses me to focus and fortify my mode of expressive communication into painting, drawing, and graphics.
My interests are problem solving and impossibilities; human error and personal politics; optimism and pessimism. It is my opinion that my artist’s statement is a political one. Revolution is my aim, although I do not believe in anarchy. I believe in finding decency in cultural values; bringing back old-fashioned obsessions with the simplicity and complicity of nature.
My art is founded on a historical platform, while implementing the playful and devastating extremes of modern modalities: the readers of books versus the writers of books. What I enjoy the most is imagining what people are going to say when they look at the work. What I work with, more so, is the technique of re-inventing conceptual modes and formulas of creating the image.
All works of art from all places and times have influenced my style of art. Fundamental stylistic structures such as line drawing and color blocking allow me to compose something special and dedicated within the framed space of the 2-dimensional surface. This is postmodern in providence. My art is about becoming public and outward while feeling private and awkward.
I use many different concepts, precepts, and gestures to create an environment where the audience can entertain themselves with a complete visual experience. My subjects are people, places, and things; nouns, verbs, and adjectives; forms, contents, and contexts.
In theory, I am a perfectionist –or was. My life has involved that struggle, amongst which is accompanied by trial and tribulation. Concept means more than beauty of picture; such as design is the beauty in engineering and technology (ergonomics); my art is a social commentary on the current state of common society.
Viewing has several techniques as well. Relationships are my main themes, of line, color, shape, or idea. Most sources come from the imagination, and in the compiling of sketched imaginative elements into a unified experience. I like for each work to have the stark endurance of a series within itself; as a prototype for a life work.
