MANIFESTATIONS OF DEATH, a thematically united series of 27 oil paintings, is grounded on a simple visual dilemma: how does one physically portray nothingness? The incomprehensible can only be grasped obliquely, so I have constructed a crescendo of metaphors leading up to the bleakest embodiment of this disembodied concept. The continuity of the theme is echoed in the repeated use of certain objects: masks, stars, bones, cut flowers and dead trees. Taken together, MANIFESTATIONS OF DEATH creates a metastasizing dialectic that is both varied and focused, a powerful exploration of the one inescapable event in life: its end. The complete set of variations, and four other visual variations, are available on my website.
My oil paintings have been exhibited in museums and galleries in 20 states, including one-person exhibitions in four major universities. Reproductions of my work has also appeared in journals and textbooks. My art criticism has been published with Oxford University Press, NORTH AMERICAN REVIEW, ANTIOCH REVIEW, SOUTHERN REVIEW, BOULEVARD and BEST AMERICAN ESSAYS.

,,I have drawn with pencil for longer than I can remember. I love painting. I work with passion and love. It is like a second nature to me. My painting is a kind of therapy for me. It lets me say things that i cannot express any other way and at the same time allows me to populate the space around me with artefacts of myself.

As a person and an artist, I am all over the place. My art would agree with that statement, if you could ask it. While this used to be an insecurity of mine, art has helped me transform my way of thinking as well as helped me realize that sometimes being all over the place isn’t always a bad thing. While my subject matters fluctuate, the one constant in all of my work is my process. My pieces are crafted with Oil on Canvas and I am obsessed with building many transparent layers. While my style is most obviously recognized as realism from a far, I believe the only way my art can be fully appreciated is by getting up close and personal with each piece, noticing all of the painted textures and minute details.
