ARTIST’S STATEMENT

What I do is capture slices of contemporary life and render them in a compelling way. My work is rooted in realism with the influence of illustration. I have used images of statues and architecture – I have rendered historical figures; prime ministers, famous personalities, and images from the cinema and theatre all with a contemporary influence. Some of my work deals with socially relevant themes. I have work in Michigan, Ontario and Ohio.

This is a rendering of a Canadian First Nations Mohawk man in traditional dress. It is part of a trio of paintings I did of similar portraits in homage to Indigenous people.

This painting was inspired by a scene from a German choreographer called Pina Bausch. I saw a documentary on Bausch a several years ago and was fascinated by her imagery and arrangements. Some time ago, I rescued this canvas from being discarded and it became a project during the beginning of the pandemic. In this large canvas, I tried to capture the intense emotional interaction between the dancers.
This painting was accepted in the Ontario Society of Artists Annual Show in 2020.
