My art focuses on two area. The first focuses on living in an urban environment, in the midst of millions of people and how it can create a sense of loneliness and isolation. I use reflection and the grid-like pattern of architecture to convey this feeling. I remove the actual presence of people, but leave tell-tale signs of life. An open window, an illuminated room, a human shadow. My second focus is the universal need for love in our life and how its loss can affect our lives. I often focus on lost love with various symbolic images, yet there is always some sense of hope in these losses. I want the viewer to realize these feelings may seem unique, but on many levels are universal to the human condition. A facade of skyscrapers facing a lake and behind the facade, every type of dubiousness. E.M. Forster. "you’ll know it’s the place built out of man’s ceaseless failure to overcome himself. Out of man’s endless war against himself we build our successes as well as our failures. Making it the city of all cities most like man himself-loneliest creation of all this very old poor earth." — Nelson Algren (Chicago: City on the Make) He realized the pain inevitable in any human relationship-pain suffered and pain inflicted. How foolish one was to be afraid of loneliness. -Graham Greene The Heart of the Matter “Even now, in my final hour I’m falling in love again”- Morrissey -Greg Morrissey
