In my art, there is a relationship with the fleeting life we share. The work has themes of the body, the landscape, and routine. I think of the macho, the uncomfortable and undefinable, humor, American kitsch, love, sexuality, pain, seclusion, and drawing space. I wonder often and think about the ways art and design can and cannot transform these aspects of life. The work teeters between representation and abstraction; both for me are nods to roots in expressionism within art history and of the land.
