I believe the responsibility of art is not ornament but correction. To visualize our misdeeds and point to salvation. The artist is the canary in the mineshaft, the foremost perceiver of the present and the future, and if the future is to be calamity, then to him falls the responsibility to raise the alarm. My work tries to accurately reflect our success in civilization.
Artist Medium: Visual Arts: Oil
This work is generally oil panted canvas. But within that format there is construction including a variety of materials both found and built. These are large dynamic pieces, painted using traditional methods and medium, but with a sharp political reference that is contemporary and original.
