Artist Statement

I maintain an interest in the figurative tradition that pursuits beauty and respects craft. I believe that the visual language of today is viable only when it is rooted in this tradition, invigorated by contemporary context. The powerful visual language of our cultural legacy - from art of antiquity to the Renaissance and on to the 19th century - offers so much to understand the sublime beauty, which is always out of time and out of reach.

My work combines aspects of realism and incidental observation with classic elements of form and composition. Portraiture is my favourite genre. I am interested in the emotional expression of the human story that is portrayed, in capturing the fleeting moment of life that will never be repeated. Beyond the obvious aesthetic considerations of light, planes and volume, there is such a mystery in a person.
