"In my recent body of work, each painting creates its own specific sense of light; the luminosity in the color contrasts the mostly dark quality in each piece. The paintings’ surfaces have a slick appearance to them; celestial atmospheres in the paintings create a feeling of solitude. Although there is a momentary facet to the work, each piece is stagnant in terms of its particular lighting and materiality."
"Using photographs I have captured as collections of moments of time, lighting, and composition I begin a painting by combining or sectioning off parts of each image to create an inspirational reference. These photographs stand in for moments I feel at ease or when I am content and lost in thought. An image captured at night through a car window, a nighttime landscape, or a celestial subject generates an interest in the luminosity and speed that I like to paint."
"I am interested in the momentary quality of a glimpse in the dark, not always knowing what I am seeing but grasping what I can. Objects blur into one another and light affects them in a different manner. I like experimenting with the differences and similarities in natural and artificial light, while painting the confusion that happens when you try to pinpoint an object’s exact location in a dark setting. Using a reference of a dark scene allows me to create my own contrasts of illusionistic luminosity as my paintings are more expressionistic than realistic."
