As a representational painter, I am partially bound to the historical lineage that informs my work. That work however, cannot escape contemporary context and phenomena that may influence or change the interpretation of the viewer. In an age increasingly defined by information, painting maintains the ability to live in those regions in between experience, actuality, memory and fiction. While it can be information or idea, question or observation, representation or abstraction, it is always an illusion.
