My paintings animate archetypal imagery from our collective unconscious through the lens of historical symbolism and mythologies.
The work is a combination of philosophical research, martial arts and personal religious experiences. By rendering significant cultural figures under a maelstrom of intense color harmonies both a subjective and objective conversation is created. This, with the diversity of mark-making and pixelated rendering technique, is where my language is made. In terms of materiality, I paint on large canvasses with acrylic.
When entering my studio, one sees a scattering of texts by Barthes, Campbell or Jung at one turn, only to an array of paint splattered across the walls at another. With that in regard my paintings can be described as a marriage between psychoanalytical imagery and fauvism.
