My own work – abstract expressionism – transformation is something that is very important to me. Even if it’s a single object or painting, it passes from something that I either recognize or don’t recognize from the very beginning into something else. It used to occur just within one object, like one painting would take me months until I got to that end….if I just conceive of something and put it down it never usually works out the way I want it; it usually just doesn’t have the energy or the vitality or the presence that I really want and I find that in order to achieve that presence I have to use this process of sequential development.

My works are private and personal, sub-conscious, unsentimental explorations of memory that examine my life and revealing themselves over time. Constructing slowly and carefully, over time, I create works that are arresting, inviting the viewer to examine and question his own and the artist’s feelings.
