I am driven to create, I feel there is a process that must be worked out - a response to a trigger in the mind; an ongoing struggle of the balance of emotion and reason.
Elements of the process are revealed through the juxtaposition of chaos and order in all things, accentuated at times by the atmospheric conditions or use of light.
The balance of knowledge, philosophy, psychology and emotion are played out at a moment of time within the creative act.
I am drawn to objects and people that inspire me in a new and fresh way, to replace the stagnant stigmas and opinions that might be blinding me to the reality of the moment.
Everything changes from one moment to the next, to be in the flow of the change; to not resist, but truthfully direct is the challenge.
With a new vision, comes new ideas and questions, spawning a metamorphic change of the eye to reevaluate the creative process.
The artistic evolution and the process of the creative steps lead me through a continuum journey of discovery. Changes intuitively happen - insights are revealed, morphing the reality of myself, humanity and the perceived truths before me.
I do not use words or sequential numbers to title my images, preferring to let the immediacy of the emotion or thought evoked by the art present itself with simplification to allow and liberate the communication to the viewer.
All works shown may be done in various surfaces, ie paper or metal and in sizes to suit your space. Some of these works were commissioned for a local restaurant and printed on metal. Great visuals, when the budget does not allow for a painting.
