Thoughts on Painting.
My paintings are a visual record of my perceptions and memories at a moment in the present time. They reflect my memories as both an awareness of history and of my transient experience of the present.
I am exploring images in the boundary zones of recognition, allowing myself and the viewer to engage our memories towards our personal interpretations.
In the end what I make are just paintings.
They are about color and light, about forms and boundaries, about the illusion of space, about traces of my brush’s movement, about their physicality.
They are about my vision, about my memory, about my fleeting recognitions, about my associations, about my impressions of past experiences, about my generation’s beliefs and follies, about my life.
All these things are arrested in my painted images with the hope they will resonate new memories for another viewer
