PAINTING GALLERY

As an artist, I focus on expressing the universal aspects of the human condition with particular attention to the paradoxical, incongruous, and unpredictable nature of existence throughout the ages. Also, I am interested in exploring the mysterious interplay between reality and imagination. In all my work, I explore the multiple layers of perception and consciousness.

My paintings contain figurative as well as surrealistic elements with carefully defined colors and forms and highly textured layers of transparency. However, as in life, order on the surface often belies an underlying message of a completely different sort in which chaos lies in the meaning, not the appearance of events. Sometimes I introduce certain pictorial elements in a painting that seem to have little relevance to the rest of the imagery, thereby reflecting the incongruity and, at times, even the absurdity of life.

I use a non-traditional technique for depicting space and depth that is designed to reinforce the conceptual material. For example, in some works, engraved lines that are carved down through textured surfaces to the canvas produce a unique dimensional quality and assist the viewer in discovering the image behind the image.
