My artwork is as much invisible as is apparent to the eye, figures gaze at sights unknown, landscapes dissolve into the abstraction of shapes over imperceptible boundaries, and color, more vivid and surreal than sunset or irridescence, animates scenes composed at once of the mystical and the natural. The ethereal and stylized cast of the worlds I create act in familiar ways; they row boats,ride horses, touch one another and stand quietly. Yet these activities, far from seeming mundane, guide us as vestiges of mythical experience. My aesthetic, I hope, illuminates a plane of existence visible nowhere else except in the portals of my paintings and collages.
It is the summation of a long and intricate process of refinement.
