About The Artwork

I began this painting with a long stripe of red running in the form of an inverted "V" through the center filling in with earth tones around it. This work evokes the buckled layers in the crust of the earth like the cross sectioned geologic diagrams of particular subterranean territory. How forces of magma, internal pressure, and time form the bands of colored earth as seen in my native Arizona, like in the Painted Desert. These strips of color hint at geologic time far surpassing human existence, reminding us that we mortal humans have been on this planet but a brief period.

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.
