"I think the best way to describe one’s art is to say that mostly I am in a state of ignorance… sort of like traveling a dark corridor trying to recognize familiar landmarks that have meaning for me. Because I am a visual artist these familiar landmarks take on the characteristics of color, form and light. These landmarks also take on personal associations for me much like a Rorchach. Because of this projective aspect, a painting may have a particular meaning for me, but a very different meaning for the viewer. That is why it may not be important to say what a painting may represent or mean.

After doing many academic-like drawing, I start a painting from a very abstract outline of light and shadow and build a narrative upon this by adding form and color. The narrative has a subliminal context and although I am not always sure where it will lead, these narratives are important. I like narratives that raise more questions than answers…. not moral or political ones, just unanswerable questions.(For those who can remember, what was Billie Joe throwing off the Tallahassee Bridge?)Of course, it is not for me to say whether my work poses more questions than answers; only the individual viewing the work can say that.

I guess if I were to single out the one important thing to me in a painting, it is the element of fleeting light surrounded by darkness and the interplay between the two. After this relationship comes color and then form. From these elements, the narrative naturally evolves."
