Not the Same

"Not the Same"
20" x  44"

My paintings emphasize and balance opposites -- light and shadow, large surfaces and small details, abstract and representational elements, sculptural and organic forms. It is not the straightforward observation of reality that interests me, but rather, my response to the compositions, places and objects, filtered and re-formed.

"We have to learn how to interrupt our lives with silences, rest-notes, rather than simply with more distractions."

George Prochnik, In Pursuit of Silence: Listening for Meaning in a World of Noise
