statement

Most of my work is a journey, as well as statement of my surroundings. Things happen all around us all the time, whether we acknowledge them or ignore them are always up to us.


I try to record some of mine, but life moves so fast, I just can't get them all, I attempt to nail down a certain Idea, feeling, something I have seen, or story I've been told, an experience that has made a lasting impression..... We all have similar pleasures and fears I attempt to come clean, without spelling everything out, I would rather you try to figure some of these things out, come up with your own conclusion, to have you pay more attention to your own world.


At one point or another we all end up in one of my paintings, what you see here, could help you decipher where you are, where you have been, and where you are going.



Not all of it is pretty.

Your paintings always make me wonder; I love them. They are mystical and I can go deep and tragic or light with puns. Here I think: Friday--after a fish dinner?

I'm with Hallie - i love the resonaces, the ambiguities, the symbols that lead to tangental places. And the sparsness and starkness of the images. Great stuff, JB.
