The figure is the central focus of my work - but it merely a vehicle to move paint. 

 

 

Being a very painterly painter has its pitfalls. I feel I must keep on my toes. It is easy to be seduced by the mark and find myself in a swirl of cliches. On the flip side, i often times find myself trying to ‘get it right’  What happens in-between these two tendencies is called painting.
