My work addresses the issue of environmental stewardship in a society that is based on the consumption and use of environmental resources. I incorporate the use of the figure and its relationship to the space of the picture plane.
The medium of oil paint usually gets me where I want to go. It offers variety; juicy, thick impasto applications, translucent glazes, opaque, flat colors or rich, deep hues. In an era of astounding advances in technology, especially communication technologies which simultaneously connect and distance people, oil paintings still seem “hand built” and provide evidence of the artist. The paintings communicate a sense of the concept and a sense of the artist.
