Artist's Statement

My art emerges from a narrative, though I don’t believe in stories that are simple and straightforward. The more I seek the narrative, the more paradoxical and complicated it becomes. By putting these narratives into paint, I am forced to be still and consider color, line, composition and texture, and contemplate each mark as it impacts the whole work.

I approach the narrative through a style I refer to as gestural symbolism. As a gestural painter influenced by Abstract Expressionism I am concerned with mark making and juxtaposing incongruous colors to create a unified and absorbing image. As a symbolist, I develop a set of symbols in terms of colors, shapes, underlying images and composition for each series.

My Book of Esther paintings capture the biblical story’s existential challenges to a young beautiful girl forced to marry a king she barely knows in a society that compels her to hide her ethnicity out of fear. When the time comes she stands up for her nation and saves it from genocide. My paintings allude to master paintings about Esther and maps of ancient Persia to develop a palette, imagery and symbolism.
