All looking is emotional.
art, place & passions
I'm an artist working in Brooklyn NY who specializes in depictions of place, landscape and architecture, as well as the imaginary worlds of creatures and hybrid beasts quite distinct from the one we are familiar with.
My architectural and place-related work is centered around interpreting the psychological aspects of space and structures. The emotional connection we have to place and the powerful influence spaces have on the psyche is the overall theme which informs my approach; my paintings are explorations into these relationships. In a sense, my paintings of architecture and places are psychological portraits.
Typically, my works are multi-layered and the finished paintings look as if they’ve been around for a long time. They often have an aged distressed look and there are many variations in color and surface texture which give them an antique feel. Layers of paint, scraped down, repainted and altered are meant to echo the passage of time, organic decay and wear that define the character of a building or place.
My figurative work is more enigmatic; more based on imaginary realms and fantastical mind wanderings. These works are usually in drawing and watercolor form and serve to amuse.
I have a number of original paintings and works on paper available throughout the year and update the available section of this website when new works are finished. Feel free to contact me directly to check on upcoming available work. In most cases, works are completed in two cycles, Spring and Fall. Usually this is late May and early October. I also sell prints on ETSY at the artinchaos shop.
Thank you for your interest in my work and I look forward to hearing from you!
