Artist Statement

I believe you should paint what you are passionate about. Ever since childhood I have been passionate about music, film and sports, and as a fan, these artists and athletes naturally became my primary subject matter. I am also inspired by the artwork of Caravaggio, Rembrandt and others, particularly their mastery of light. I consistently strive to bring these dramatic lighting elements to my own work in a modern way, as I view this as a powerful means to bring the energy, motion and determination that each individual subject possesses to life.

The masters accomplished their luminous effects through multiple thin layers of oil paint. Working solely in oil becomes time consuming to achieve the dramatic glow that I envision upon first conceptualizing a piece, primarily due to the long drying times for each layer. Combining acrylic airbrush and brushwork to start a painting efficiently bridges the gap of providing the multiple layers required to achieve the dramatic lighting effect I seek. Through this technique I have come as close as I ever have to attaining my original vision. My paintings aspire to convey the intensity, energy and soul these individual personas emit that feeds into the greater inherent drama of all human expression.
