Artist Statement Submitted 2018

It is the instant that makes the mosaic of life a reality, and it is the gift of the artist to be able to pick that apart, mull it over, slow it down, and refine it into an image. Ideally, that image, my painting, is not simply what it is, but it becomes something else. That is the transformative nature of painting at its best. It is my sincere hope that through no lack of effort, will, and technique I can refine it to the point where it translates both into a reality and an abstraction for you, the viewer. And make no mistake, it is your reality and your moment, and I hope it is beautiful. Because in the end life is beautiful, and the harder you look the more perfect and complete it may be.
