"...Light, color and reflection are the key areas I was exploring in these paintings. Simply composed, unassuming commonplace objects that I take for granted became fascinating and beautiful. I’ve become very interested in the subtleties of color that show up in shadows and what’s reflected from one object to another.
As a contemporary figurative oil painter I’ve always looked for the line between the world as it exists and the beauty that it can show us..."
