" Many of the works hover between abstraction and figurative creating a new figurative style that expresses the unseen in the human psyche and spiritual mystery."
"My recent paintings are primarily about how we react to our environment and the parallels I find within us and the natural order of life. I want to explore the idea of walking in two worlds, one on this planet abiding the laws of nature and one that embodies mysteries of universe and what we are in essence of it all. These works are often blurred, scraped back, blocked away or have large sections removed to simultaneously examine or rearrange. Similarly to how we selectively choose memories and perspective in our actions, I try to do the same in my paintings with the familiar shape of a face and the selectively uncanny morphing or rearranging of it's shapes and the shapes surrounding it. These paintings are not meant to represent any one individual but more of the essence of what they may represent through individual perspective and personal relationship to the viewer."
