My artwork extends beyond the frame through the mind and reflexive psychology of every viewer. Keeping with semiotic perspectives, the paintings take on mythological proportions in the moments of viewing, sensing, and responding. They speak directly to our primordial drives. My most well known series of color-field paintings "Myths" recognizes these mechanisms of power and expressive spirit. My practice builds on the foundations of abstract expressionism and overhauls those approaches for contemporary audiences while incorporating new risks, bold taste, and inspiring personality.
