I see art as an act of communication between the artist and the viewer. I aspire to create a personal expression in oil paint that will communicate and connect with others. My goal is to create paintings, not photographs. Upon close inspection of the surface of the canvas, I want people to see interesting colors, movement, and expressive, loose brushstrokes. Stepping back, I strive that my audience experiences a realistic image with a variety of edges, colors, and values. My goal is to represent the essential elements of the image rather than details, simplifying the subject enough to allow the viewer to complete the image themselves. By leaving room for the observers’ interpretation, it makes them active partners in the artistic process. Thereby, together, we share the experience of creation and complete the communication process.
