 I paint with acrylic on canvas or wood panels. Stylistically, the work is quite representational, with a perpetual focus on the past. I like to explore the flora and fauna of antediluvian locales and other bygone allures; I’m captivated by démodé genres and intrigued by anachronistic faces. I’m fascinated by the world’s big topics: Time, Love, Intrigue, Desire, Ambition, and What does it all mean? I’m always playing for a bit of nostalgia to trigger a viewer’s memory. Kind of a Proustian thing: a prescient remembrance of how it all began, way back, when “riverrun, past Eve and Adam’s.”
