Artist Statement:

My paintings are expressionistic works of acrylics and other mediums on canvas.  My work is largely in abstracted figurative expressionism, often exploring the human condition as well as the relationship between the individual and community.  By mixing gel mediums and modeling paste to alter the paint’s texture, luminosity, and consistency, the application of the paint mixture brings an abstracted fleshiness to the work.

I concern myself as much with the representation of the paint as the subject and typically load the canvas with the paint/gel mixture without regard to the final composition.  This allows me to be spontaneous and reactive to every stroke and layer of paint leading me to a final palette of color, value, and temperature of the canvas. Pulling from an inventory of painted canvases, I then match a canvas with the specific subject by searching for abstracted reveals of form in the patterns, values, and movement of the painted canvas.  Once fragments of the figure are realized, I work to pull and push on areas of the canvas to bring the figure into composition.  The topography of my work, created with palette knives and other tools, is random and arbitrary.

The fields of color and texture seem to be disconnected in detail and simultaneously conjoined in overall composition.  The depressions and elevations of the paint mixture obscure and abstract the realisms of the human form, lending an expressive voice to the work.  For me, the visual journey around a canvas should be exciting, surprising, and informative; cluing the viewer to not only an expression of the subject, but also an articulation of the painter and the creation of the work.  I particularly enjoy watching people view my work from a distance and then approach the canvas to uncover the details, all the while restraining themselves from touching the texture of the canvas.  If my work causes you to stop for a moment to see with your mind and perhaps urges you to make order of what you are viewing then I have achieved my aim.
