My work, is an expression of my inner life and feelings on canvas. I used to identify with the abstract expressionists, but some years ago the work became more figurative allowing closer identification with the mood being expressed.
I often use a single female figure in close identification with my experience in life, but what I am expressing are universal feelings and experiences. Therefore, I tend to use nude figures so as not to tie into a particular time or cultural context.
Sometimes the work is an enlargement of a subject, a kind of heightened realism, combined with strong light and contrast, to enhance or change the viewer's experience.
However, much of the work expresses an interest in what is hidden under the surface, layering one image over the other. I am also interested in humans striving for growth and transcendence, with a recurrent theme of movement often using birds to symbolize this.
