Artist Statement Submitted 2014

I am a hunter and a gatherer, accumulating images produced by humankind. Segments of this collection of images then emerge in my paintings. My work shows images that are revealed as fragments in the midst of change, destruction, redefinition, and restoration. The sources they draw from are evolving and the paintings are caught in that “still” moment of change. Today as the exchange of information increases on a daily basis, it becomes more difficult to trace the heredity of images. One seldom has the time to begin to understand what is being viewed before the image moves on and evolves. It is out of this fast paced exchange that I extract elements that resonate with a sense of vital meaning. I use this wide language of visual marks and notations to describe that which humanity has in common, be it humor, mortality, or yearning to understand what is beyond.
