Artist Statement

My work is centred on the human figure, not just as a natural, physical topic, but as messenger of deeper metaphysical truth.

The human form, though worthy of study in its own right by virtue of intrinsic aesthetic properties and endless dynamic possibilities, has a deeper significance for the psychological and symbolic messages it is empowered to convey.

Hence, I see the profane, be it the expressive face or the flowing figure, as the servant to the sacred, a self-reflective mirror whose surface must not be shattered to be penetrated to reveal deeper spiritual truths of being.

Stylistically, the body to me is inviolate. Despite the lure of its underlying abstract forms, it is the beauty of reality as it is that thrills me.
