This work might remind you of the earth and its elements: cloud formations, the cosmos, geological formations and the vastness of the ocean. Always conscious of my surroundings, body, environment and art become a natural extension of the other, symbiotically. The resulting ephemeral imagery has a certain weightlessness and fragility about it that I find endlessly compelling and meaningful. I try to capture a moment in time, but unlike the stillness of photography, I try to make images that keep moving and changing at every glance, like surface tension of water or like moving clouds. These paintings are very much about living in the moment.
I was compelled to do this work after the death of a close friend, the tsunami in Japan, Hurricane Katrina, the Horizon Gulf Oil Spill and after my father's catastrophic stroke (from which, he has recovered). All of these events happened within a short period of time and became a wake-up call and fire underneath me to say something, if I was going to say anything about this life at all, while I had the chance.
