My work is a combination of building and painting. Each work is planned, built and painted in harmony with the subject. I seek a physical presence to each work. The construction, size, and painting itself, coalesces in the work. The unique bridge I chose for Bridge to the Future possesses an innate physicality that can be elegantly expressed in a constructed painting.
Bridges and buildings uplift the viewer through a sense of awe at what wonders mankind has created. Walking over a bridge can represent a transition. This idea speaks to individuals who have started over in life or made a change. Change and growth are never easy and the landscape is unclear. In the distance I often utilize a sunrise or the warm hazy glow of early morning that holds the promise of a brighter future.
