My recent work is part of a continuing investigation of my experiences as a wanderer, seeker and observer. Images, surfaces commingle in a disparate mélange of semi recognizable narratives. Words are sometimes used to connect the observer in an oblique way to the imagery. My thought is to offer an image that juxtaposes metaphors in a poetic manner. I try to form a dialectic connection with the viewer rather than illustrate some didactic idea.

 The scale is intimate in keeping with the offering. Color is intuitive as is most of what I do as an artist. I try to balance craftsmanship with intellectual rigor, spontaneity with deliberate investigation. The recent block prints suit my approach to image making. They are direct and just unsophisticated enough to allow me to develop images without being seduced by the process.
