Piece description from the artist
Whether figurative or abstract, my creative approach is characterized by an energetic style translating my view of the human condition into a resolute visual composition. The resulting imagery has a vocabulary of visual elements that appears in my work with vigorous intensity.
Using ancient myths, classic texts, poetry or just societal interactions as a platform from which to explore themes of death and human foibles, the richness of my visual language takes the content to a less narrative context. My intention is to engage the viewer through the style and expressive qualities of my work.
