Having graduated from Parsons School of Design in 83′, the rebirth of figuration and expressionism became influential to me as it was to so many of the same generation. Painters from Thomas Nozkowski to Tadanori Yokoo, as well as earlier artists such as Leon Kossoff, Forrest Bess and Philip Guston have also helped in establishing an aesthetic direction.

Painting is a tactical experience involving a myriad of ideas, approaches and fundamentally problem solving at its base. Although modest in size, the use of color, form and gesture are tools utilized to generate a feeling of scale.
