“I am both a representative and a cynic of thetumultuous culture that surrounds my generation.As a realistic-figurative artist I integrate these roles into my paintings by introducing a modern satirical dialogue, with art-historical references. Although I have always found expression through the figure to be a uniquely literal experience, the human form has also presented me a great challenge. I must attempt to use the oldest and most potentially hackneyed image of artistic expression and make it new and personal – reinvent the reinvented. My paintings are psychological, sensuous, self aware, and insecure. They are the documentation of my growth as a technical artisan as well as a student and self-conscious human being”.
