Statement

 

Within painting, I am finding the boundaries between emotions and the people that carry them, and the spaces they occupy, both physically and psychologically.

 

I will be unencumbered with a burden of pedantically stating, which inevitably obfuscates a sense of feeling, and places the verbal over the visual.

 

Painting is about the visual revealing the visceral.
