ARTIST STATEMENT
WHILE ELICITING EXCITEMENT AND PASSION, I SEEK TO DISTUB AND AWAKEN  THE ANIMAL PART WITHIN, AS PART OF THE HUMAN CONDITION. I DO NOT SEE MYSELF AS A PAINTER BUT AS AN EXPLORER IN THE QUEST OF THE "INNER".
 MY WORK RESULTS IN PROFOUND INTROSPECTION AND VIGOROUS INVESTIGATION OF PERSONAL DEMONS AND EXPRESSIONIST REALITIES. THIS LEADS TO PERSONAL ANGUISH AND LOVE, NOT ONLY OF THE ACT OF LIVING, BUT OF LIFE AS IT IS. ' CHAOTIC STRUCTURE OR STRUCTURED CHAOS" ? THAT IS MY QUESTION !
 MY JOURNEYS ARE TAPPED THROUGH THE PERSISTENCE OF MEMORY, DREAMS, DE-CODING PAST LIVES, ANCESTRAL ARCHETYPES , SEX, PASSION, OBSESSION, PUNK-ROCK, IGGY POP, THE CLASH, SANTANA, MAMBO, CHA-CHA-CHA, CARL JUNG, PSYCHOLOGY, DNA,  ANTHROPOLOGY, WARRIORS, WEAPONS, MAGIC, AFRICA, PERCUSSION, EDGAR ALLAN POE. 
I SOMETIMES SLASH THE CANVAS AND PENETRATE IT, THEN SUTURE THEM, THEREBY EXPRESSING TORMENT. BUT THE NARRATIVE COMPONENT HAS BEEN SUPPRESSED, AND THUS THE STRUCTURE STRENGTHENS ITSELF AS IMAGES FIND THEMSELVES.  I CONFRONT SIGNIFICANT  PERSONAL ISSUES AGAIN AND AGAIN.
IN MY WORK, REPRESENTATION IS NEITHER SIMLIFICTION NOR ABSTRACTION, IT SIMPLY ORGANIZES THINGS LIKE NOTES ON MUSICAL SLATE.
 THIS BODY OF WORK BRINGS INTO FOCUS MY INSISTENCE UPON A FIGURATIVE PRESENCE THAT CAN ALLOW ME TO MY INNOCENCE THROUGH SWEET VICIOUS TENDERNESS. THE FIGURES ARE LIKE CREATURES CONDEMEND TO SELF-DESTRUCTION.
 'MY WORK COMES TO LIFE NEITHER TO BE SELF SATISFACTORY NOR TO PLAY A ROLE IN THE WORLD OF THE ARTS, I SIMPLY PLUNGE INTO  THE UNKNOWN '…………………….
