The creation and exploration of art has been a life long love — the process of painting colors on canvas, drawing on paper, and cutting on wood and printing. When I look at my work I remember my making of it.
The human body provides inspiration for most of my work. It is beautiful. But, it is also grotesque — blood, guts, fluids, etc. It’s inner-workings — giving us nothing-less than life — are extraordinary, but it’s failure creates great pain and fear. There is also a physical history as individuals — with scars, aches, appearances, movement. A vessel for our selves. The landscape also influences – the innumerable colors and their juxtaposition. I love to study perspective.
The craft renders unuttered meditation and dictation of feelings, stories, and ideas. Words require a beginning and end — structure and logic. Art remains open to complexity, mystery and contradictions.
