The Artist

Artist’s Statement

“The body of my work is a self-portrait.
   Like many artists, I want my journey through life to be truthful and individual. After all, it is within the individual that truth is most easily found and the further from myself that I look for this path, the further I will have to travel to find it.
   As with those before me, I have found the emotional cost of individuality to be high. Rather than being a ‘reed in the wind,’ bending and compromising and doing deals to survive, the individual can be unyielding and brittle and unbending and, once in a while, endure and change the world.
   It would be easy to yield and become lost in the craziness and the noise. Painting gives me a voice, a way to discuss that journey and that cost. It is an outlet to say what I profoundly require; I can talk about this truthful journey, but I feel best when I paint about it. I need each of my pictures to tell the story of my journey… that being an individual means making a decision and taking action, finding the truth and then taking responsibility- paying the ferryman.
   The body of my work is a self-portrait and the quality of my being is in my painting.

   Why contemporary abstract art? Because information elicits conclusions, while emotion demands action.”
