I create post-modern Renaissance paintings. They are inquiries into truth, exploring dialectical concepts and the personal perceptions that
undergird them.

"Where there is perception, there is deception" is a quote attributed to Buddha.
My own work is often an effort to uncover my own deceptions.

The figures I paint are symbols for ideas and conceptions of morality and spirituality that are larger than they are as individuals. This
happened in Mannerism during the High Renaissance, yet my own version is post-modern in that there are multiple visible layers of
unresolved meaning.

The image, and the construction of the image
becomes a space in which to deconstruct contemporary definitions of painting and my own
perceptions of the link between the feminine, masculine and the spiritual.
