Artist Statement

Artist's statements usually sound really hokey. It seems to be hard to get to the truth. My truth, I think, is that I have been drawing and painting since I was 6. That makes 62 years. I must like it. I paint to express myself. Producing paintings is not about the subject but about the paint and how it gets on the support. We humans are surrounded by things, junk and stuff. Those are the subjects that are transformed by artists into design, composition, space, emotion, line, and color, among other elements. Those myriad elements are used to express feelings about our existence. Today, I saw a four year old kid driving a battery powered jeep down the sidewalk, his face filled with deep concentration. He was followed by his father whose face radiated caution, trepidation and absolute happiness-- simultaneously. An artist's interpretation could run the continuum from a homey scene like Norman Rockwell to an anxiety and danger filled painting like Lucian Freud. Same subject different paint. Catch my drift. My challenge is to find out who I am when I paint, what I can honestly express and not produce sofa pictures.
