I believe Art must evoke an emotional response. Historically, love, awe, calm and in some cases ridicule or anger have been common reactions.
However, art is serious business; therefore very rarely does it induce laughter!
My art, much like my other works looks at the humorous aspects of life - quite often through satire. If my painting has evoked some response be it ridicule, anger or outrage, I am flattered. If you see the humor that I see, I am thrilled! The only way of insulting my art is by ignoring it.
Laugh at it, ridicule it, curse it, burn it, throw it, just please don't ignore it!
I like to express my perspective via Oils, Acrylics and Charcoal - sometimes all in the same painting.
My latest explorations are in viewing the world through a combination of paintings and installation elements.
I am also experimenting with silk screens and GIF files using tablet computers. In many ways this web site is also one such experiment. Just move the mouse over the presidential guard on the right and you will get what I mean.
Thank you for visiting my web site. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did in making it.
