What is Art? That question has been asked for centuries. Art surprises life, it remains the untouchable, unattainable goal which in turn feeds our desires. Painting allows us to see what our world is telling us . Nature is at a distance and that is attractive, the interest to the human condition. Art can be subtle, evocative, beautiful and at times disturbing. As a painter, what I see, render and express connects to the beauty and strength of Art.
Every brushstroke, dot, slash, mark placed on the canvas has meaning. As interpreted it is at once familiar ,yet alien. The language of Art is not difficult to learn, and gives life meaning. My interest remains to share this as best I can.
My process begins with an idea derived from objects , atmosphere, nature, whatever captures my attention . The studio offers a meditative state of mind, laying out my tools, palette and composition starts a creative flow that is difficult to describe in words.
The finished piece is given to the viewer to assimilate and interpret.
