Artist Statement

I create figurative oil paintings and pastel drawings which synthesize contemporary and classical techniques. They contain an undulation between realism and abstraction that obscures the subject and negates the figure vs. ground dichotomy. My work grows from themes such as obfuscation, disintegration and the grotesque.
