My paintings explore a freeze-frame moment in time and the situations and relationships which manifest within. Abstraction affords the viewer the ability to discern nuance beyond the mere subject matter, drawing them into the main motif of the canvas. My pure abstracts employ this same sense of perception. They are derived from my photographs which explore the smashed and degraded pandemonium found within wrecking yards. They exhibit instances of beauty and narrative inherent to this devastation.
