My paintings are incidental images, essential in the history of a life, formed within a pictographic language. In concert with the titles, these images both recollect and recompose important memories that, though personal in premise, could be applicable to anyone. My paintings strive to identify archetypes that represent, among other things, our resignation to the mystery of undiscovered sources and propose that, since nature has been misplaced, the “natural” is always unnatural.
