Artist Statement
My current body of work is a union of  historical painting imitation fragments  combined
with
_various contemporary painting styles, which are juxtaposed  to form a re-imagined
visual aesthetic.  To wit, I employ a variety of manners, styles, and subjects from history to
be
_seen in concert with the material substance of paint itself, producing an embedded figure
ground of differing painting  techniques.  The resultant paintings appear as an overlapping
pictorial language, remaniscent of  a  masterful looking graffiti that speaks to past, present,
and future. I have derived  inspiration from such imagery as the Late Classical Tomb
Paintings of Northern Greece, to the calligraphic characters of Cy Twombly; and perhaps
chiefly by the Proto-Romantic drawings of British Artists; particularly Henry Fuseli and his
contemporaries.  Other influences include the Flemish and French school of modern masters,
such as Rubens, van Dyke, Watteau Boucher, Ingres, and John Singer Sargent, are some of
whom I suppose I have referenced the most. Yet I'm also equally interested in the more
modern styles of Willem De Kooning, Jackson Pollack, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Jenny  
Saville; and of course
_there are many others too.  However, it is my intention to employ
differing manners of style as  language
_into a methodology that provides the spectator some
insight into the essence of what painting actually is: materials organized into form, subject,
and narrative. But beyond what I have intended for my paintings to communicate, I trust that
the viewer will bring their own experiences and sensitivities to the work which hopefully
stimulates other interpretations. Nevertheless, acknowledging drastically different Historical
methodologies within a contemporaneous two dimensional framework appears to legitimize
each seemingly competing visual and social/cultural/politcal aesthetic, whatever they.
