Artist Statement. 2022.


I am painting with a new transparency, figures immerge from landscapes, empathetic; marking my understanding of their desolation; romantic, war torn, searching, through a revolving door and reflecting into the modern matrix. Malevich, Mondrian, Picasso, I set my easel beside you and on into the current, into the flow, navigating intuitively the flood of turpentine glaze, sticking translucent to the titanium of the primed linen.
