Ugly Sunday Morning
I have always been drawn to the human form. I am fascinated by the instant connection it creates between the subject and the viewer. No matter who that viewer may be there is a connection. The visual presence of the human form is a very powerful image. It speaks to everyone and we certainly feel the same emotions from one time to another. With my work I try to create a dialog between subject and viewer. Whether it may be through a certain mood or even a look. I want to intrigue the viewer. I want the viewer to wonder who this person is, what they are thinking, and what is going on in the painting. I am really looking to create works that draw the viewer in and entice them to figure out the meaning, or better yet create their own.
Most of my work is done from imagination. I certainly use references for the figure, but there is a time when I turn away from references and let my imagination take over. I think that this process gives the work a certain quality that I am looking for.
I mainly work with oil paints, as I love the sculptural nature of the medium; the mysterious colors that arrive unannounced, the sense of control and yet at the same time an element of unpredictability.
