My artwork teeters between realism and expressionism, sweeping impasto brushstrokes, vivid hues, creating a surface of tension, a paradox of visual sensations. Forms express a synergy with the composition; meaty shapes, stratified and discordant surfaces. I explore narratives and themes that combine mundane objects, nature, urban landscapes and the manmade and machine-made. There is a surreal quality to the imagery surface, bold brush strokes and alluring colors and animated personas. It is a pictorial style that focuses not on objective rendering, but on a personalized imagery that expresses emotions and impact.
The paint is thick, and viscous; it adheres, coagulates and congeals across the canvas. Compositions emerge; forms move and dominate; textures develop with bold brush strokes to form environments driven by manipulation, color and texture; nature, portraiture and urban landscapes.
My painting communicates in a dialogue of rich color, galvanized bold brush strokes and a copulation of imagination, nature and the manmade elements.
Goals as a Painter
My artistic endeavors are always to perfect my craft with recognition, to be outstanding and part of the history of art. I paint to transmit my personal quest. I am a visual “Storyteller” uniting my art and my spirit. I speak through my materials and processes to transform my inner concepts into a visual narrative with the paint surface as my storyboard.
Audience engagement is essential to the success of my experience. I accomplish this through active engagement and participation in gallery exhibitions, art venues, and advertising my professional capabilities and enthusiasm.
