I paint about the human condition, about the mystery of life. About the tantalizing fact that we have only intimations, but will never know, the nature of reality. About the illusion that life is secure whereas in fact anything could happen at any time to change its course. About loss, fragility, old age, and mortality.
My work does not refer to literal history. I do not place the figures in any particular setting, nor do I paint the world around me, but rather the interior world. The works are meant to convey emotion; ultimately they are about states of mind.
I try to capture that moment of bewilderment when structure and order in our existence break down, everything looks unfamiliar, and we are sure of nothing.
