'The essence of my work is its existence in both contemporary and historical settings. It is based in traditional painting techniques and expressed with relevant contemporary subjects.
My photography reveals the last hold out of human privacy - the mind. I show the quirky choices, impractical infatuations, and peculiar drives of our personalities. While other aspects of digital culture deconstruct distinctions between public and private spaces, I re-energize those considerations. I elevate familiar subjects with high art techniques.
I compose images as Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio might, had photography been an option in his lifetime. Space is carved with a heavy hand following his signature use of light and shadow. The striking contrasts pull us into the frame and beyond the limitations of our logical understanding. The photos provide a voyeuristic window into personal concerns. The hyper- real imagery is both obvious and ambiguous. Viewers must learn to discover that which is lost; to wonder at what might be misplaced.'
