My paintings are my palette for chaos and order to collide. The contemporary issues confronted in my work provoke a response-both emotional and intellectual. I symbolize the struggle towards birth that our society now faces.
We are at the beginning.
The cave man blew pigment through hollow reeds-creating images of the bison. These magnificent works captured the spirit of the bison; instilled was the positive energy needed for the hunt. Our contemporary counterpart is the graffiti found in urban cities-solely from the work of spray cans.
Painting, to me, is the great equalizer. I take the high of art, and the low of art-which is commonplace-and let them battle it out on the canvas. I paint for humanity; the spirit of man; the builder; the organizer; the evolutionary spirit that has built civilizations; I call to arms.
I am speaking of that common thread that the great thinkers of the past taught us through their lessons; the common link which triumphs over adversity, poverty and injustice.”
