Artist Statement

I am committed to become a world-renowned artist. I have been actively producing art for more than two decades and have an accomplished body of work consisting of hundreds of paintings, thousands of works on paper, and multiple sculptures including several large scale pieces. I have also created countless digital audio and visual artworks. Photography has also been a large part of my career with thousands of photos in my archive. My goal is to pull these works together into a dense salon style show to demonstrate the evolution and relationship of my body of work as a whole. Modeling my career after, artists as diverse and imaginative as, Pablo Picasso, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Brice Marden, Julian Schnabel, John Cage and Jackson Pollock, I know I am equally as productive as these distinctive men. I have used these as well as many other prolific artists as a catalyst towards a unique art that shall become a part of the world art canon. I see my current work as just a small beginning to a long and productive artistic career and life.
