Primarily, I look to bring both the materials and subject matter of my work back to a raw, and primal place. Recalling Genesis and creation of man from dirt of the ground, I look to create art that derives from nature. I use classical Greek & Roman posing of my forms to preserve a sense of timelessness. My stylistic inspiration comes from the traditional Japanese technique of Gutai, where I move the materials around the canvas by hand and brush, attempting to maintain a wildness of stroke.
