My more recent paintings contain elevated complexities with composition, lighting, and contrast. The main focus is the distortion of images within water that converses with the concrete physicality of its surroundings. Rather than being inclusive of the standard formula of distribution between sky and land, I prefer to mostly deny the sky to allow water to be the primary element.
I hope that while viewing my art, people experience the subject of the painting on a different level and develop a more intimate connection to it. It is this emotional response to my work that I value most and what drives my art.
