Artist Statement 

My paintings examine the relationship between humans and machines, consciousness and dreams.  The transient and illusory environment of reverie is contrasted against the austere and fixed domain of mechanized processes. I approach my practice with an openness to form which can grow and metamorphose into being. I  work from my imagination where the handmade marks are most evident, and also utilize process based approaches that seek to remove the hand from the work.

    The subjects of my paintings are defined by shifting and borderless edges that allude to the separation between the real and the imaginary. I consistently turn to my own life, and especially the subconscious, as a resource for my artistic endeavors.  An examination of the intersections of the body, soul, and technology provides the thread that melds my work together.

     I have progressively abandoned reality in favor of a more visionary representation that often results in abstraction. This decentralized perception of the world is emblematic of an age that is not tied to a single reality or narrative.

I'm currently represented by Giampietro Gallery in New Haven, CT.
