Artist Statement -

My subject is seawater, how it moves, what's in and around it. It disolves my conditioning; the rules are different my
perception enhanced. Gravity is defied, light fractured, almost everything shifts, moves constantly, but with a rhythm. There is constant change, chaos, yet order appears like a tide chart. I paint the patterns I see.

Always uncomfortable with "man vs. nature" and anthropomorphism, seeing ourselves as detached observers or opponents, I look for us as elements inside. Rather than putting critters in our clothes, giving them human traits, I want to get under their skin, learn their social skills, traffic control, time management, supply and demand, etc. I watch until patterns emerge.

I love the pitch and roll and the chance to see the rare school of thousands to millions of fish.
