My first eighteen years were spent in a beach town in Southern California. My friends were either fellow surfers or Lowriders (who I consider the fine artists of the auto industry). The surfaces and palette I’ve used for 40 years is a direct homage to both influences.
Moving to Chicago for graduate school introduced me to the Chicago Imagists who I’ve just plain stolen from as often as necessary! If you’re gonna steal, steal from the…. I’m in love with this city and started calling it my hometown on day one. Sometimes I miss the Pacific, but then the deep dish arrives at the table and that yearning for the ocean evaporates immediately.
My work has involved the same connections and questions for as long as I can remember. I feel I’m doing the same piece in two or three dimensions again and again hoping to figure out what the damn question is! I hope I never get it right, I’ll probably be disappointed. Plus the exploration is too much fun.
“”Whatever you may think my work means or represents…you are correct.
