“ I observe people, I observe myself.
I painting the enduring loneliness of humankind, their efforts to find understanding and intimacy. I paint the anger that I keep inside, my reflection of myself, my thoughts and meditations. I don’t paint specific people or situations, nor states of mind…, thay might be me or you, at some distant point in our exitence.
I like to look at people out of time and space, from the front or the back, in a cave or caught up in the jungle or machines that thay have created. Along with their pride and their loneliness, they survive feelings of insecurity and ridiculousness, the very ridiculouness of their current existence in the andless flow of time.
They are like fossils viewed billions of years from now,a kind of lonely and unstable fossil of one of the universe’s most noble creatures. I love my work of portraying the inner emotions of separate forms, individuals, silent lonely worlds, as their separate conciousnesses interact in this world.
For that reason, I want those who view my work to feel a gret source of energy from inside each portrait, each body, each the result of a complex emotional reaction or which might be a potential bringer of great happiness to them.”
