Medium: Assemblage, Collage, Drawing, Painting
While primarily a painter, I often combine painting with other media. At the heart of this work is the process of synthesis, a “putting or placing of things together.” Combinations of disparate ideas that interact together to create new relationships and perspectives intrigue me. In my painting I utilize the figure to address fundamental and contemporary human concerns; birth, suffering, innocence, vulnerability, technology dependence, economic disparity, aging and death. My work is highly influenced by my years working in human services. I freely employ and re-contextualize Judeo-Christian imagery, though I do not intend these images to be primarily religious in nature. I consider the work to be conceptual as well as humanist, critical as well as aesthetic.
