My work is concerned not with objective reality but rather the subjective perspective-positive or negative. Distortion, exaggeration, and fantasy are the filters through which I paint the modern world in order to evoke moods or ideas. When an idea presents itself I am motivated to explore that subject in drawings and paintings.
My work is not conventional, academic, or the new modernism. I am creating a new avant-garde.
