Artist Statement

As our lives are made up of things we can control and those we cannot so my paintings are expressions formed by purposeful and random actions.

These actions are at once the result of thoughtful acts and a record of the acts in motion.

These purposeful and random acts are the layered body and muscle - the bones and veins that create the visual expression and infuse it with meaning and life.

Here are two paintings from the The Palms will Remain series. The smaller one on the table is completed and the 8 foot long one is still in progress. When the series is finished there will be approximately twenty linear feet of paintings of various lengths but all 15 inches high. I hope to have a gallery interested in showing the whole series wrapped around all four walls.
