my work explores history and familiarity, a sense of time and place, important people in my life and a deeper appreciation of nature. i tend to work in series as i go from point to point. each piece informs the next and helps to clarify the dilemmas that i encounter as an artist and observer, husband, son and friend.
periodically i switch mediums. this year i am revisiting collage. what i like about collage is taking disparate images and combining them in a meaningful way. the sheer amount of possibilities are a challenge.
last year i was working in stone as an antidote to a world going too fast. the rhythm of stone is appealing to me. the sacred accumulation of time speaks to me. i've been applying that to my painting techniques as well, slowly building encaustic wax with the tools of the ancients. i'm trying to find the absolute essence of what i make. simple and plain spoken.
