It is not always easy to describe how a painting, much less an entire body of work, is given life. At times, the paintings only show a fragment of what was first conceived, and on other occasions they end up blurring the idea even after engaging in an intense effort to put it in focus. While my main goal was to capture the mood and texture of Savannah, GA, sometimes the paintings moved further away from the initial form—even as I tried to get closer to what is in my head. This directly affects the viewer’s level of interaction, both on a psychological and formal level. I make art so that I may bring new creations into existence every day. It is my hope that I will positively shape and morph things to come.
