Artist Statement

” I paint my myths, folklore, traditions, fables, proverbs, and secrets. I am a symbolist, inspired by the mentality of the Industrial revolution. Telling Siqueiros and Caravaggio stories, using a Dada process, with the color palate of a Los Angeles-Gauguin. The layered texture of my painted surfaces, physically capture the emotional passage of time. The unnatural poses of the figures, contain fractured repetitive shapes, framed by the landscape they are in. Each painting sets the stage for a story, that I hope inspires you to reflect and tell your own.”
