PAINTINGS
: NOWHERE , HARVEST , TRAVEL


NOWHERE

An invented small town called “Nowhere” serves as a catalyst for creation.  Through this town, constructed out
of memories, collected images and invention, a variety of ideas and themes are explored.

Each painting starts with a word or phrase that becomes the painting’s title.  As the words are contemplated
from a variety of angles, images develop.  An interior or landscape emerges, inhabited or abandoned, and is
filled with objects that serve as metaphors. The process of painting is like assembling a puzzle, with the pieces
moving and changing until the final image is revealed.  The process of viewing these works is the opposite,
deconstructing and decoding the image to reveal the subject.
