These paintings do not represent a series even though they were all made within a seven month period of time. Type casting and uniformity are venues of art making that I do my best to avoid. Over the years my work has developed through a rotation of cycles which include atmospheric light, nocturnal themes, a dark and sometimes obscure figuration which at times can be a reaction to current events or personal issues, and renegade paintings that allow for a departure from the normal scheme of things and even allow for this painter to be bad at what he makes. In the end it is important for me to practice this liberation, this freedom and to be true to myself. My life's body of work speaks for itself.
