In our time, the inundation of digital images viewed on screens is extraordinary. Yet, perhaps surprisingly, people remain captivated by works using traditional media, such as painting and sculpture, and continue to crowd museums and art fairs to experience directly their marvelous power.
Painting, for me, transforms that which it seeks to express and apprehend, thereby promising to bring a new experience to the viewer. I like to hope that this process, and what I bring forth through working it out, will hook the eye and engage the psyche. I feel extremely fortunate to be participating in this transformation, whether painting from life, from photos, or from pure imagination, across an undulating range of subjects.
