Home Grown Persistence

This paintings is a meditation on the passage of time, and a reverence for all things living. Here, the artist expresses an emotional reality, and explores symbolic elements of human perception in a visual way, beyond what can be encapsulated by language.
In these works, a contrast between abstraction and figurative elements, as well as a treatment of space more aligned with imagination than with physics, creates a basis for articulating a personal version of the human condition.
