His paintings are large, complex designs that attempt to reflect his sense of the times we are living in, and both
how richly interesting they are and how difficult it is for most of us to navigate their uncharted waters. There is
a great push and pull, the lure and the repulsion, the fiction and the real, the known and the unknown. And we
live in this swirl of delicate gestures, driving desires, fantasy, economic complexity and interdependence,
isolation and hope. He is trying to render some notion of this rich fabric.

Infinite fascination with details and dynamic pictorial architecture in combination with frustrated and
sublimated desires make for a curious, static combustion in a painting. He attempts to map out these forces in
western culture with a sense of their infinitely regenerative power.

And it's about the viewer—how we interpret and react to what we see, how we are the people in the
paintings—and how they are us.
