Artist Statment
Intensity, interaction, passion and meditation, the individual references, the collective and art is created. The artist as voyeur steals selectively from the public environment of Hampton beaches and New York City streets the images that define the American experience. Far beyond the standardized interpretation of reality provided by photography, painting allows me to capture the essence of human experience. Condensed into the stolen moment, my choices as an artist extend reality by leading the eye in the re-orchestration of light, space and the pure beauty of paint itself.
