Artist's Statement

As a painter, my endeavor is to use the power of Light & Dark to its maximum effect in order to capture the inner psyche of each individual. I strive to do this by not just isolating the main focal point, but using the Positive & Negative space to fuse together the main subject with its immediate surroundings; showing how one is affecting the other, creating a bond between all involved.

My work centers on the experiences of people within the confines of urban life. Whether in the subway, in the streets, or in a park, I always strive to capture my subjects in a moment that solely belongs to them; always adding a certain dignity regardless of whether they have much, or little. At times I give the observer points of reference to understand the situation at hand; but in most cases, I leave it up to the observer’s imagination to interpret what is going on, inviting him/her to become part of the painting rather than just an onlooker.
