Artist Statement

I best describe my work as the refinement of execution and a disciplined handling of material triumphing over visual chaos and disorder.

There is a common rhythm and visual inflection that disrupts familiar themes with their independent attitude and unpredictable refusal to articulate the expected images and visual realization.

Each and every piece is richly endowed with qualities that by turns are lyrical and rigorous, violent and still, humorous and tight-lipped, surreal and pop, open and mysterious, adoring and irreverent.
