STATEMENT:

A painting can function as a haunted object; a psychic container of the past reverberating through the present.

Nearly all of my works deal with spaces/environments that haunt my own memory, but this is not where they end. Every painting acts as a self-reflective mirror for the viewer. Little or nothing I create is didactic or absolute.

My studio process equates to a wandering through the dark, searching for a connectivity between things otherwise disparate and difficult to fully explain. I have a sense that in developing such work, I am not uncovering “answers”, but delving deeper into a great, ever-expanding mystery.

All of my works are best observed while you are alone.
