Artist Statement
In the same way that poetic language gains meaning through distillation, imagery also becomes more potent when extracted from the collective consciousness and re-contextualized. It is in isolation that these iconic and archetypal images become part of the poem, imbued with supplementary meaning. Using this visual language, my recent paintings are poetically driven narratives that are at once iconic, psychological and subversive. Arrays of archetypal imagery culled from both the collective consciousness and the realm of the intensely personal suggest both sociological issues and mythic individual dramas.
