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.
Of late, I came into contact with a bunch of really intelligent artists (yes, they do exist), thanks to their encouragement, I came into contact with a few surrealists. My latest explorations are in viewing the world through a combination of paintings and installation elements. I hope you can see the influences in my latest paintings.
Thank you for visiting my web site. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did in making it.
