A Creative Message
I want to believe that my paintings reveal on the canvas a kind of intellectualizing of the internal human conflict of reality and hope and of my conflicts also. I would hope that they draw the viewer into a consideration of fear, love, anguish, and other human emotions, because the conflict is ongoing, there can be no successful end to the search for comfort, no matter how much we might hope for it. Ultimately, the futility of the search is an absurdity, or so I think these paintings discover.
History can repeat itself, but if we try to remember and understand the past, we can build something better in the future. I need all of these things that are coming to me from all the sides to create paintings that hopefully will provoke meaningful reflection.
