ARTIST'S STATEMENT
 

The work is primarily autobiographical and represents an exploration into the discernment of truth by examining the creation of identity through place. It was never the direct intention for the work to become autobiographical: however, the pursuit of telling the truth in painting has yielded a depiction of my personal understanding of places and their shaping of identity, making me a central character in the underlying narrative of the work.

Painting becomes a means of drafting and rendering a disruption of perception. That disruption is what informs the subject matter creating a linkage that becomes more and more apparent the longer I work at representing spaces and their inherent disconnects to ideas of the self.

To tell the truth in painting means a never ending search for the creation and understanding of the self. Seeking to achieve this truth in the work by examining surroundings for deeper meaning is how I define me.
