Artist Statement - Figurative Paintings

There’s a certain kind of rapture that exists between an artist and their work. Reality transforms into a heightened awareness of shape, color and texture. There’s a strong parallel between this experience and the sexual experience. Sexual bonding opens us to our deepest longings for connection. Art makes tangible the ache in our bodies and yearning in our hearts. These paintings explore the connection that exists between these analogous experiences.
