  • I'm concentrating on producing images which invite the viewer to engage in narrative speculation.

    Pure surrealism resides in the most mundane locales of the natural world. I seek examples of it in both my interior and exterior reality. I appropriate these random images. I synthesize them. I abstract and redefine and distill the concrete and ethereal components of the real world into my paintings to produce images of surreal and symbolic absurd expressions of narrative kitsch.

    In the newest phase of my work I continue to experiment with re-establishing a plastic esthetic unbounded by the confines of any singular "ism" or school of artistic philosophy. I seek, collect and assemble into a visual vocabulary images easily imbued with express or implied meaning, determined, altered and defined by set and setting. I create pictures that achieve a unified field, generating a narrative flow of light, color and form with the same adherence to the principles of rhythm, meter and beat demanded by musical or poetic composition.
