Artist Statement

My perspective as an architect is that of moving through space. Essential to this is the passage of time; Perception, Realization and Recollection.

Every painting needs to present its unique presence; an image of artistic PERCEPTION as experienced by the painter.

The REALIZATION of passing existence, when subject and viewer move into and then out of focus transcends a sense of ordinary space and time through the sense that here is here…and now is now, as asserted by Edward Hopper: “The sacredness of everyday fact”.

Selected RECOLLECTION, painting en passant, supplies inspiration and reference material for recent paintings; incidental, fleeting and complete. This is to say, life passing by; nothing more and nothing less.
