Artist's Statement

My artwork can appear liable to change direction without warning. I am not especially concerned with questions of stylistic matters. What most attract me are oppositions and mobility -- the conditions of life as it is lived now. My means for addressing these issues are the simplest ones: light and dark, water and oil, color and black. In making my work, I seek to put a "pause" on life, to re-examine it with the tools available to me. Some people say that my work is contemplative. I would rather think that I am observing reality and keeping myself aware of our space-time. Catching the light from a window or freezing some junk mail on my canvas allows me to materialize that time. Looking at the conflicting forces that lie at the foundation of our society, I find some peace in playing with the images it provides us. My work is a kind of "pace maker" and helps my heart to beat normally, in rhythm with our reality.
