My goal is to share a visceral experience in my art.
I’m drawn to contrasts in the natural landscape: shadow against light, smooth against rough, movement against stillness, tension against release, life against death. Exploring the visceral experience of these tensions, my work in oils is both structured and loose, representational and expressionist.
For the past five years my painting has focused on the dense growth and re-growth of the semi-tropical flora of Bermuda where I grew up. Here, dying and living occur within the same structure, poised in a constant dynamic flux. This is nature’s only form of stillness, the beauty that springs forth even as life decays.
