Artist Statement

I think of my work as a conversation. A conversation that operates between the real and the percieved. I try to keep the conversation oblique enough so that it allows the audience room to infer a narrative. I have a point of view but I`m not interested in propaganda. The framework of the narrative is usually conflict. The conflict of ideologies and philosophical points of view, that seem to run through and form the basis of our human enterprise. The paintings are not about material representation even if they use natural forms. They are metaphors and that is what allows for irrationalities. Hopefully anyone who views them will go away with a sense of reason, open ended inquiry and a disregard for authoritatianism
