paintings are influenced by my work experience in the television, film,
and video production fields.
I enjoy the visualization process, which allows me to create
something meaningful and unique by using raw data or fragments.
This information can come from either the footage of a motion
camera or in this case, from still images.
The paintings or “movie stills” unexpectedly spring to life with
a sense of animation, which is created by the dissecting and shifting
of planes and perspectives.
Like an editor I consider the relationship of one segment to
another as I adjust these pieces to make a coherent scene.
My altered and slightly abstracted reality depicted in the work
is often more informative and revealing than if I had made a painting
using a single viewpoint.
This method of working allows me to create paintings that reflect
the chaos, complexity, and ambiguity of everyday life.
