In my art, I have chosen to create works that infuse the language of the abstract and abstracted to an art-making process that is inherently informed by the nuances of culture and emerges from a process of total and complete autonomous action; artistic narrative transforms into an impulse that is guided by intuition, reason and the will to express the experiences of life into arrangements of visual form.
The method in which I create my art is profoundly affected by the sheer fluidity and absolute sensitivity of the interplay between painting, drawing and video. These works are expressions of my trust in the power of chance and impulse to imbue the work I do with expressions that are a direct manifestation of my experiences with the act of exploring the power of experimental form.
Visual form is the vehicle by which these concepts are developed and the processes and methodologies of art making are where I can perpetually and meditatively seek truth. It is in that search that an insight into artistic integrity becomes the ultimate motivating force that causes me to seek a level of expression that entrusts the finished work of art as a unending source for revelation, mystery and profundity.
