Some people believe that paintings have meanings. Although I employ images from cartoons, animals, and objects in my work, I do not believe in creating a specific narrative.
Instead I am sensitive to the charge or implication imagery lends to the painting’s surface. Currently I am using cartoon characters and other media images to conjure up new and old observations of the familiar.
I am inspired by our experiences with life and mortality.
Paintings are like walls. They remind me of the places I’ve lived around. Their surfaces recall kitchens, bedrooms, and backyards.
I believe that we possess more than five senses and I’m convinced these extra perceptional senses allow us to create and digest art. If there is a message in my painting, it’s that I’m not sure of anything and I’m okay with it. Linkabstract, paper, simple but elegant
