Current Project: Abstract Primitive Expressionism

As the elemental dimension of symbolic culture progresses, so does, by equal steps, alienation from the natural. Symbols are essential for the development and maintenance of social order. From symbols come language... from language comes number...from number comes time and order and systematic control. That is the reason why I stay away from symbols. I paint from a transcendental view that is devoid of time and cultural significance and paint as a part of nature as opposed to separate from it. In my work, everyone, regardless of race/sex/religion can find a respite from our everyday modern/industrialized/technologically advanced society.

There is a desire in modern culture to return to a more primitive and simple way of life. I seek to examine this desire in all its facets through my artworks. By avoiding symbol I am able to focus on the basic elements that make up the structure and form of nature such as line, shape, color, and texture. I dissect the elements of structure and seek the energy that is within all things. In this way, by viewing a piece of art, one can feel the beauty of nature that resides in its simplicity.
