These paintings are not intended to be didactic, expository nor agit-prop. They are intended to be celebratory and conversational. It is my belief that if I approach my subject with honesty and open eyes the politics of the contemporary landscape will still be evident, and that by aesthetic contemplation, by force of hard looking and considered representation, we will develop a deeper understanding of the world within which we live. It is our necessary context, and without it we are nothing.
