Artist Statement

Painting, I participate in the boundless world-at-large. I paint because a painting lasts and I will not last. I only paint human beings and I expect that will not change. My interest has always been individuals. Their emotion, their mysteries. Extinguishing color, I isolate each face absolutely. Sheering away vanity to present a humanity that is alive while in decay – just as we are. These monochromatic paintings are done in acrylic. I achieve textural effects within a series of layers. Loose washes inform the lines that eventually crystallize the piece. I perform an inch by inch plotting of detail and allow the washed paint to create organic forms. The emotional focal point always rests with the eyes of the subject. (Gallery Orange)
