My paintings dog paddle deep into the dark water of modern dystopia. Mythological archetypes merge with current themes of American masculinity to create a series of fumbling narratives, as men are both the subject of humility and provocateurs of chaos.

I have been developing a method of synthetic painting that plays with the conventions of form. Paint applied with various consistencies gives a level of plasticity as each new picture tiptoes toward the question of natural being.

Each work is developed in stages from the imagination, creating dynamic forms that disperse and agitate each other.
