ARTIST STATEMENT

My current work is an excavation of the inheritance of the past which reveals the undercurrents of cosmology and personal perception by alluding to tropes of the urban environment via the incredible act of mark-making on canvas with vivid acrylic color --similar to street art. I frame every piece in an unremarkable pure white frame to emphasize each expression.

Sometimes we need to see the bugs on the tree and sometimes we need to see the whole forest. It's important to adjust the lens, zoom in and zoom out before taking action.

Break the lock

Speed past the cops


Wait!


Who's that peeking in my window?

Wow...oooh weee

It's just me


Haha

Off the wall

Staring through the project window

Enjoying everything

Observing every scene


Married to my shrink

I don't blink

Nope not even when I sleep

Wink, Wink, Crinkle your nose
