“On the Perspective of Being Wrong” 34×48

A painting must touch an emotion to last. Without emotion a painting is just an illustration. Its the experience in the present and in memory.c 93 %22On the Perspective of Being Wrong%22 34x48 web

Invention is born of dissension not consensus. I am trying new directions, finding new paths, some that dead end and some that flourish.

“Three Views”

Horizon fill the negative space of the composition and it strengthens the relationship between foreground and background. They are the blurred distance that is counterpoint to the hard edged foreground. Both contain fragments that are based on the incomplete visions that make up our memories

“Trance , Connection, and Drift”

Waves are the perfect metaphor for life. Fleeting constantly moving and pushing forward propelled by a mysterious force up out and in the end, back to where it began.L 08 %22Trance, Connection and Drift%22 24x48 web

“Repercussions of a Heartfelt Dream”

I am having an ongoing conversation in paint about the idea of layers and how it relates to the everyday. Like an archeologist that digs and reveals pieces and fragments of human history the layers represent the passage of time and the importance of memory.c 90 %22Repercussions of a Heartfelt Dream%22  web


Same Old Unordinary Day web

Thrilled to be in a group show with and incredible group of artist taking place at Outpost Projects in Joshua Tree.

UFOLOGY, curated by Kio Griffith is a gathering of artists exploring territory, the space in between and it’s public definition devised as a plan, sketch, diagram, model or an experimental construction. It’s about pioneering, exploration, and colonization. The surreal narrative premise is that a team of explorers (invited artists) will gather at base camp (Outpost Projects) where the Antarctic continent will land, displaced from current global warming conditions. The selected works may seem to emit supernaturalistic, otherworldly, futuristic, psychic overtones and will transfuse one or more of the five senses, flaring into synesthesia.

The Breaking Point

“I like what is in the work– the chance to find yourself. Your own reality– for yourself, not for others– what no other man can ever know. They can only see the mere show, and never can tell what it really means.”       Joseph Conrad Heart of Darkness
