Artist Statement

Recent paintings and drawings are abstracted "mental maps" of my travels, both literally and figuratively. By exploring cultural messages through iconic signs, graffiti, familiar patterns along with organic and inorganic imagery I attempt to record moments of interaction and response to the daily stimuli to which we are all constantly subjected.

I draw inspiration from sources as varied as aerial land formations, city sidewalks, primitive mark making and contemporary literature. Superimposing line, shape and washes of color suggests a drive during rush hour traffic, a morning train ride or perhaps the vast network of communication we receive daily. Together the abstract and referential invoke the quirky mania of modern society in which the viewer may wander into for a visit.
