“I have spent the past two decades traveling throughout the United States visiting museums, large cities, small towns, national parks, civil war battlefields, assassination sites, graveyards, and national monuments. I am a lifelong student of the vast profundity of American music as well as a glutton for American history, literature, western painting, film, comic strips, and cartoons; all of which have consumed my nights and days. These interests and practices are harvested and used within my process to create an intertextuality in the paintings.
In my recent body of work, So Much Depends on the Weather I’m working with pathetic fallacy, a literary device that equates environmental weather conditions with human emotion and psychology. The Paintings explore the human/planet relationship as well as personal and environmental turmoil.”
