Urban and Figure paintings

As I explore the social world around me, I find that I am increasingly drawn toward the intimate but everyday moments we share. There is much going on during these ordinary interactions. The mundane is important. Even those who dwell in the largest cities live out their lives and derive their meaning from interactions with friends and loved ones. That is how we find meaning in our lives. That is how we share joy and sadness. As an artist, it is my goal to examine these interactions in an honest and straightforward way. Often I find that a sense of ambiguity and suspended time becomes apparent in my paintings. But then again, life is often ambiguous and our stories rarely have clear beginnings and endings. That is just part of the territory I seek to explore.
