This work is indirectly inspired by the Robert Browning quote, "Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp, or what are a heaven's for?" Being a Buddhist and agnostic leaning to atheist my belief is that a man should grasp what he has and embrace that heaven is in the here and now if we can be present with it. There is a certain futility in falling short of the mark which this figure does in the course of his action. It also draws on the Marcel Duchamp cubist work "Nude Descending a Staircase" in that is shows a figure in motion, showing three snapshots of missing the mark.

I paint dualities. My art is the study of contrasts, dichotomies. It thrives in the boundaries between light and dark, optimism and nihilism. I work with forces that are both contradicting of and inherent in one another. I manifest these forces in my canvases weaving together symbolism, meaning, and abstraction. With my brush I express both conflict and symbiosis and give form to ideas that defy capture.
