I recently finished a body of work: Translation. It revolves around language, specifically, what's unspoken.  I feel, I paint. It’s what I have to say, sometimes its not even conscious; putting something instinctive into a visual expression for others to receive.

Paintings, for me, are circles of communication.  As an artist, I intend for their work to be translated.  I want the viewer to not just react to my paintings, but to respond to them.

 Abstract painting helps me to understand something foreign in a familiar way.  Sometimes things get lost in translation, reinterpreted, adapted….my hope is that its at a visceral level.  You can view the entire collection here.  Or visit it at The Gander NYC until June 2016.
