"If you could say it in words there would be no reason to paint."-Edward Hopper Common place events that invoke sincere emotion, and lavish fantasies of excess and escape inspire the work I aim to create. These two opposing ideas; the beauty in the ridiculously small, and ridiculously in the grandly beautiful inspire my work. We are able to conjure the image of anything our mind can imagine in a matter of seconds. We Live In A Post-Post Modern World--Or whatever we're calling this era--Where every piece of information, every film, every Image Is at our beck and call. There is no wonder or emotional response to form anymore. I hope to find that wonder and beauty in my art and Bring emotion back to imagery. While working digitally has an exponentially larger range of flexibility in what it is able to create, I love the tactile feeling of working with my hands. Out of the mess of charcoal, ink ,and oil paint color and form emerge, the result of these unruly and tangible materials meld into objects with form and meaning, surprising even me sometimes.
