My art is about visual interaction with a tangible reality, universal and inclusive, and I’ve anticipated the reemergence of a public sensibility which values those principles and responds to their expression.

As subject I generally choose the unattended glance to access the established expectations of the viewer where outside associations are few and thresholds are low. By reconstituting typically unaccounted visual elements, I attempt to create an image which alerts the awareness each time it's seen.  

I apply single primary colors one at a time, each reduced in acrylic medium to transparency, with secondary colors mixing on the canvas back to front. Very little tube paint is used and finishes are flat and waxy with an apparent surface depth. Images can be expected to read well in half-light and to resolve with distance.
