My work is created in layers. Layers of paint dragged across the surface with the media altered to create different amounts of transparency and viscosity in the paint. This process hides and reveals the artistic process. Things that are beautiful are obscured and things that are ugly are revealed. Visions remembered and visions unseen. There is a search for truth in the form of a vision that cannot be articulated in a definitive image, and so it is spoken in color, texture and form. Themes of crime, injustice and evil, faith and doubt, and hope and hopelessness come to the fore.
