ARTIST STATEMENT:

My images float in an undefined, ambiguous space. Some suggest houses, buildings, rooms, and other architectural or geometric structures. The structures sometimes evoke human presence and human interactions, and can also be seen as metaphors for internal states of being. Other works employ organic and geometric forms that create a similar effect. My paintings can be interpreted as pure abstractions or as self-contained narratives. An ironic humor with a meditative, existential, transcendental bent informs them.
