“Art reveals the evidence of one’s life; in observing and creating the artist discovers themes that are the the makeup of his character, and perpetuates the making and sharing of experience. I create images that become material records of places, things and people that have been significant to me. Often, as I paint them they become significant to me in a different way: aesthetically, conceptually, and spiritually. There is a state of existence that lies between one’s physical and spiritual state, the present and the past, the reality and the symbol or impression. It is while I am in this frame of mind that life and the world seem the most clear and meaningful. It is to this state that I desire to return, and painting is one of the avenues through which I can regain and expand those feelings.”
