Artist Statement

 

" While looking at painting, the viewer takes in two worlds, simultaneously, on the canvas, so your experience of looking at the painting has various layers of interest. I am interested in this question of dual experience, this wonderful balance between looking and enjoying the painting itself- the surface, how it is made, the expressive force of paint on canvas, and on the other side- a strong emotional response to the image, the content, and thoughts that take you away into reflection."
