What is ‘Art’, but a sublimation of emotion and life’s experiences?
“As a painter, I’ve worked in many different genres but I always look for some form of ‘revelation’ in the process. Ive always juxtaposed between abstraction, figuration or some combination of the two. Regardless, I experiment with ‘Painting’ on a daily basis and and each passage of paint bares some form of ‘feeling’ for my state of being at that time. In short, I’m more concerned with the poetry of lived experience and the moment of action that can relate to it physically into material, image and object than with narrative, entertainment and design.
My recent work has to do with assemblage and deconstruction, it’s perhaps a commentary on my accumulation as an Artist, having to do with reassessing older works and incorporating a measure of ‘Time’ and physicality within the given piece.
I often use gestural marks, throws of paint and cut up and connect my other paintings together to affect this.
When a piece comes together well, I often laugh at my idiocy and think, 20 years of painting and if I don’t drop dead from the fumes, I might be on to something.”
