URBAN and FIGURE

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 in everyday, almost unnoticed, interactions. The mundane is important. Even those who dwell in the largest of 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 and though it’s relationships that interest me, life is not always straightforward. 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. I suppose that is just part of the territory I seek to explore.
