Issues of violence, disenfranchisement, hunger, grief, loss, and aging inform a despairing recognition of the human condition.
Critical of the various systems in place to manage these social agendas, I create visual commentary of political justice to encourage equity and consciousness about the universal nature of our collective existence.
Promoting the notion of art as an agent of change that guides us toward grace and wisdom, my intention is to embed the social issues that concern me into my paintings. The choices of materials to support my content are oil and mixed media on canvas, wood panel and paper as well as Alabaster sculptures.
The formal compositions to express my vision are currently figurative - aging women, men, children and their losses, physically, sexually, emotionally and mentally.
