My artwork is comprised of external imagery; physical outward forms.
The primary purpose however is to stimulate the structure of thought.
Like a Zen koan, each work is designed to act as a catalyst...
to provoke, invite questioning and induce contemplation.
Although ultimately conceptual, my work relies greatly upon American, pop-cultural
iconography. The inherent qualities and unique attributes thereof (reference
association, implication and sentiment) are fundamental. Through incongruous
juxtaposition with contrasting elements -a "contextual-interplay" results.
In creating these compositions, I endeavor to remove my self from my art.
Personal opinion, political, religious and social viewpoints are forsaken.
An ambiguous interplay of concepts predominates -a transcendence achieved.
Consequentially, "thought-structure" is the primary representation of my work.
