artist statement

“All that I desire to point out is the general principle that Life imitates Art far

more than Art imitates Life.

 

Osca Wilde

 

 

“To me, Painting makes more sense than anything else.

The act of painting seems the closest thing to nature, almost to the point that you feel as though you(one) becomes nature itself, that nature is expressing itself through you.

 

 

It seems to me that Painting, as in nature has opposite poles...(opposing ideologies of Order and Chaos).

It is the relationship between these poles that can create tensions, harmonies, discord’s, balances etc... and all the other infinite possibilities within a painting, regardless of subject matter.

 

 

To me, painting makes more sense than

anything else...”
