Artist Statement

I find myself intrigued and captivated by mere elements of mortar and glass as their end results become architectural structures...tall and mirrored glass buildings, specifically. The large windowed forms transfers reflections of ordinary buildings into flowing illusions of mutated and curiously surreal shapes. The familiar inanimate world around me teeters on a balance of animate and unexpected imagery between what is perceived as real and what is not seen. My interest is pushing these images into that place between truth and fiction, to connect the human experience and animated planes of existence into the viewers subconscious mind. The viewers perception of these representational buildings I paint, hopefully stirs an interactive dialogue of dualitys, opposites and mixed messages when peering from this world into mine. In the end, my concerns are involving the viewer with components of mystery and ambiguity, conventionalbizarre, humorousominous, goodevil are the parallels I create with bold color in, on, and around my interpretations of these fantasy-like building shapes. Painting this subject matter of mortar and glass onto soft and delicate silk is a duality in and of itself, an irony. ...
