Some people hate his work.  Others don't want to live without it.


"I can create my own reality on canvas, and give form to the spirits who live within my waking dreams. They are my fathers and mothers, my brothers and sisters, and they are my children.  They know me.  They can see things that I can barely imagine.  What are they thinking?  What is the source of their power?  What is the nature of the abyss into which they gaze?  Are those eyes looking into mine or into infinity?  They do not threaten, but watch over me.  They are my protectors.  They are archetypal connections to the magic and mystery that will always be part of my nature and the nature of all humanity.  I am only a man: helpless in the dark.  But I can feel them with me.  And they seem to know the answers to the questions I do not even know how to ask.


So beware: my paintings are confrontational, not comfortable.  Many people cannot handle the intensity of inner assessment they demand.  They require viewer participation.  Yours."
