This ain’t no namby-pamby rigmarole. This is the physical manifestation of the way thoughts are processed. There are multiple decathlons of ideas firing like pistons in this mind, making intelligible words difficult to come by. A telescoping handle landing net is used to grab images. The work is not chronological, nor does it follow a linear narrative, and it is SQUIRREL! Ideas are smashed together. The work plays on human nature and the inherent need to find answers. Curiosity kills the duck-billed platypus. The work is not intended to solve world peace, but it may be life-altering. Naturally, the work is derived from my thoughts, therefore imagery sleeps in my bed. The shapes of canvases are decided by objects. Sometimes the object itself is portrayed, other times the image does not match the canvas shape. Humor is a very important component to the work. Broccoli smashed on a bunny wrench of disaster leads to endless laughter. The images are administered coffee or steroids at a young age. Interpaintial relationships abound. Painterly renderings of organic forms are contrasted by the graphic plasticity of mechanical imagery. The canvases interact with each other by way of connectors, influenced by handmade furniture seen as a youth. They are inside jokes between the artist and the work. One plus one can equal babysheeptractor. All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares.
