Artist Statement :

These paintings are supposed to be beautiful. Some of the abstractions are taken from patterned dresses.  The patterns are stretched contorted and folded by the woman who is wearing them and the design of the dress. In 2016 I started working from photos of flowers that I take in my day to day life, mostly when I am on walks with my wife. The colors are chosen quickly and intuitively. I am a huge fan of The N.B.A., RuPaul’s Drag Race, ephemera, and po-boy sandwiches.
