Meditations Series

My work consists of oil painting on both wood and canvas, as well as, mixed media drawings and prints. For several years now I have assembled images from the landscape of my mind and consider them to be taken from the pages of a single book...a book that confronts the complexity and mystery of our time and place. 

The chaos of current affairs and my own experiences and struggles in life are on my mind when at work in the studio. I contemplate many concerns and questions but no clear answers ever come to mind.  

As my mood is generally subdued and sad when contemplating the chaos, I am inclined to construct sublime and dreamlike spaces for my images to inhabit...where serenity and tranquility exist, even as the world around me burns. 

My response to the concern and chaos of this world is not necessarily one of escapism, but of a prayerful desire for peace and calm to prevail in the end. As an artist working and participating in the experience of living in this  'postmodern era', I consider my work to be part of an ongoing series...if you will, a 'Meditations Series'.  

The photography displayed on this site represents a wide range of subject matter covering many years of utilizing the camera as a tool, both film and digital, for framing compositions of interest to me in the visible natural world.
