Artist's Statement

In my paintings I am searching not for freedom of invention, but for a freedom of interpretation. By cutting back and forth from figuration to abstraction, and by scattering fragments of the body across the canvas, I am painting a crepuscule of the sexual imagination - a place where the viewer has to strain to see, must struggle for coherence, has to engage a mystery. I am looking for a dusk more revealing than the light of day.
