Artist Statement.
My work blends the storytelling principles of pulp covers, comic books and Graphic novels with the Modernist theories of line in color as articulated by the Bauhaus teachers, especially Kandinsky and Albers. Personal and classical mythologies weave a tapestry of symbols into the distorted figure struggling in isolation. The avatars constructed of layered planes of translucent colors live as best they can with what they were given.
