Painting is above all a process. Rather than being products of preconceived ideas, as landscapes and seascapes my paintings may suggest, each image represents -if anything- a departure from certainy. By way of internal dialogue, itself the product of whole-life unamable experience, the paintings emerge as if with voices of their own. My intent is to visually communicate a play of contradictory forces, disruptions and shifts where no message is delivered, no names are names. Painting is an engagement with the ambiguous and the unknown.
