I describe my art as Contemporary Surrealism, readily identifiable images in thought-provoking contexts. I paint stories. My pieces often elicit a smile, for passionate as I am about subject matter, much of my art is whimsical, reflecting an irreverent sense of humor.
My current work, life-size cutouts called “Elementals,” explores the human condition. Certain constants, universal commonalities of environment and character (good and bad) determine man’s behavior. Using natural materials and familiar objects I try to portray the complex ideas and emotions, traits and flaws, that make us who we are.
