Urban Landscape Paintings

The urban landscape is always changing. Buildings are torn down to be replaced, built up, and town down again. Graffiti tags an empty lot, weeds grow in every direction.

I am seeking a moment that, when painted, transcends mundane expectations to reveal an intensely present experience in the varied strokes of paint.  For example, “Woman Walking,” set in a Burger King parking lot explores what is unseen. The abstracted figure moves past the viewer, ghost-like, framed by the structures of the building and electrical transformers behind her as acidic light pools around her both illuminating her passage and seeming to disperse it.
