Artist Statement

 I draw, paint, construct forms or per/form antidotes to reality.

In the privileged hand the mundane task is to extract other hidden possibilities, much like editing poetry. These extractions are generated in a process of continual observation, the goal is to reorient the viewers gaze looking at a surface, with new eyes. My expansive and extensive research includes the genres of film, literature, travel and the lived American experience.

The intention in the work that evolves is to create ceremonial fields, to mark out something I have discovered missing or hidden.
