Art is relevant
I look to paint the transient beauty of changing light, the passing hours and seasons, the fragile balance between the wealth of material world and the simplicity of formless. Transient, understated, imperfect things shine for a moment full of life, and encourage the painter and the viewer to connect and share in their personal interpretation.
Art is a thread that binds humanity and opens us to appreciate the fragility and uniqueness of our environment with its signs of the past marching away to inevitable passing and the marks of the future yet to take shape. In a world marked by the unraveling of environmental balance and social fabric, art becomes again relevant to heighten our sensitivity and bring us back together to focus again on what is important for us as human beings.
