Haunting, even ghostly, the paintings unearth the viscera beneath the skin of our psyches, encouraging viewers to face buried fears and reclaim aspects of themselves they may have long repressed.   –  Richard Speer, art critic, curator, author

About the paintings

I associate these paintings with a disquieting and ambivalent attachment to place of origin, buried histories, lapses of time, memory, meaning and loss of landmarks. What has been erased resurfaces in uncanny signs and visions that seem familiar yet not quite recognizable. I use techniques favored by the surrealists such as automatic writing, free association, and accidental processes in a contemporary style that evokes superimposed surfaces of urban graffiti as much as markings left on the land by lost civilizations.
