Artist Bio
My own artistic theories and practice have centered on the interior of my studio. I like to think I have given new vitality to the traditional still life genre. In ordering aspects of life through painting - when good paintings take over - my work becomes a reconciliation of divergent realities, reinventions of the world as my mind reflects upon it. The subjects are free of overfamiliarity, dictated by private curiosities and enthusiasms. The process is spontaneous. I believe there is energy in these works and by this, I mean that the still life becomes an event in which objects are liberated from their formal boundaries by playfulness. My paintings hinge on an aesthetic reality enhanced by an awareness of the emotional potential of experiences which can be translated visually. Balanced between still life and imagination, they are personal perceptions of life being experienced.
