see art as a special form of communication between the artist and the
viewer. This artistic communication relies on direct visual impact
rather than on words or concepts. Thus, I seek to speak directly to
feelings and emotions without the artificial symbolism of language. My
choice of subject matter and execution differ greatly among individual
paintings, but I believe that there is a mood of serenity and
introspection present an all of my artwork.
the last several years my artistic mission has gained definition and my
vision has come into focus. My goal is to describe visually the
mysteries of the Catholic Church using contemporary styles such as
abstraction. Medieval and Renaissance depictions of mystical concepts
and biblical themes such as the Annunciation, the Blessed Trinity, the
Crucifixion, while breathtaking in size and scope, present images that
are difficult for modern viewers to appreciate. While abstraction does
not create the same degree of narrative detail as that found in
classical artwork, I believe that it can provide a more powerful image
to describe concepts that we as humans cannot understand intellectually
and ultimately to be a source of inspiration. At the very least, we can
update and modernize the symbolism and presentation of a vast amount of
western art history.
