My paintings, though based in the landscape tradition,
are cerebral and visceral explorations. They depart from pure realist
depictions of the world and move towards a more expressive sensibility.
By abstracting what I consider to be the elements of realism, form
and light, my work becomes an exploration of my feelings and thoughts,
reduced, distilled, and refined to the pure elements that engaged
a visual response from me. Each painting is a memory, a reflection
of my observations of nature. By working conceptually, the work
is allowed to develop freely from the boundaries normally associated
with the traditional landscape.
