People often ask what we want our paintings to do--the answer,of course, is that the painting will do what the observer wishes it to do.It is a chain that leads to the forgotten past and the unknowing future. All we can ask as artists is that our paintings carry on a dialogue with the observer. My paintings do not reflect passion or violence--many of us have seen what the misguided can do to the forgotten. I ask only that my work stops the observer to begin a conversation--where universals are forgotten and where only the secrets remains.
