Artist Statement:

The Human race, the urban village, this is the whirlpool and kaleidoscope of the human predicament. I paint the figure, the power, the emotion, the psychological implications and the struggle untouched or overlooked in our daily lives. I want the viewer to be able to see the drama of those challenged by daily survival. For some it is a life unimaginable, for others a reality sealed by time. Their sweat, their age, their wisdom are the flowers, the water, the earth, and the sky in the landscape of humanity.
