:bios always sound so morbid, like a eulogy. it's true. the only difference is the bit where they talk about the survivors. Born and raised in rural Ohio, I landed on to the scene in columbus, armed with a $12000 scholarship to CCAD. in 1997 i graduated from there with a b.f.a. i continue to paint, write & do commission work for a variety of folks. i generate fetish items. tactile things you can wear, read, hang on a wall. occasionally gathering enough work for a show.
_inherently, i hate explaining my work. it short-changes the experience of viewing the pieces. everyone views the work differently, bringing their own experiences to the piece. i explore a bold and subtle use of color. whole worlds pour out of the brush onto the canvas or bristol. old symbology taken from childhood (and pop culture) is reimagined. i think an image is a success where you can't quite tell what was used. it looks familiar but different. i am constantly fascinated by man's explanation of the unknown. painting over previous strokes. layering. covering up areas once explored. i like that duality.
