Cathartic, drenched in tongue-in-cheek symbolism, and drawing on the lusciousness and precision of decorative genre with an ab-ex abandon, my work makes use of color, fluidity, energy, juxtaposition, transparency, and control to suss out the emotional layers of my own experiences and tie them to the larger context of humanity through common allegorical frameworks.

Continuing from earlier explorations in modular sets of paintings, my recent work pushes the boundaries of traditional composition. Diptychs, triptychs, and quadtychs are worked and may be installed in every parallel or aligned arrangement, each revealing a unique anthropomorphic symbolic narrative.

  1. Even though the statement is overarchingly jargoned-up, perhaps a necessity these days, the artworks actually do what the statement claims they do—a refreshing moment in and of itself, added to by the freshness and depth of the artist’s pieces.

  2. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyway, just wanted to say superb blog!
