In the studio I am primarily invested in the struggle to balance the identity of the represented world and the visual means of expression: in short, the balance between subject and form. I realize very well that the true content of my paintings is less often found in the recognizable objects depicted but more in the subjective artistic strategies used to form the work. To me the balance between the two is paramount because it is there that I experience the nature of my reality; exuberance, order, playfulness, sensuousness and mystery. It is there that I even sometimes discover content that I didn’t expect. It is there that I can express the respect that I have for the world, life and love. It’s a way of exercising my curiosity and expressing my belief that wonderful things are to be found in our world, in our reality and in our time.
