These new paintings explore city scenes: the relationship between interior and exterior spaces, between structured and natural forms, between individuals and their connection to the surroundings.

I explore the idea of place as a source of meaning. The figures in the environments suggest a narrative, but the viewer is allowed to fill in the story. The environments go beyond mere context because, like a portrait, they describe a character, a history, and a purpose.

Let the paintings speak for itself, I hope you will be able to join me at the opening. The show will hang through the month of November.
