Artist Statement

The endeavors in my studio practice encompass journals, drawings, painting studies, and photography, and of course, Painting. Although those associated pursuits and explorations could stand alone, and often do, the effort and focus that goes into them manifests itself ultimately in the work on canvas. Though I can think of many influences to my work, having been born and raised in Northern California there is much about the Bay Area’s Artistic Legacy that informs what I do. Hans Hofman to Stan Brakage, on through to a contemporary painter like John Zurier, stare back at me in my work without a conscious effort on my part. From a particular approach to a specific subject, the Painting’s reflect this overall distillation.

The Buddha paintings, as with others, with their jostle of rectangular forms, and frames in the painting define and contrast aspects that I bring to the work. As references in and of themselves, or as painterly devices, it allows me to explore the various ways that we distill and process visual information, and of course, the subject at hand.
