“The human form is the most important element in my work and it exists as an anonymous representation of the self. Objects and places are not necessarily important and rarely have a dominant part in my work. In fact, they may be absent all together. The figures exist in condensed fields of color and texture that often resemble nature forms. It is unknown whether the human figures are indoors or outdoors, perceived or remembered, standing or floating, alive or dead. In my artwork, presence overrides identity. Overall, I appeal for a sense of human awareness and spiritual consciousness.”
