Artist Statement

I'm a self-taught artist splitting my time between Woodstock, NY and Greenpoint, Brooklyn. This most recent UFO series began in early 2020, just prior to the pandemic. These paintings fantasize an alternate history and/or future. The paintings involve combinations of invented symbols and geometric forms with conspicuous depictions of alien spacecraft. This work draws inspiration from ancient pictographs, studies of supernatural & unexplained events, and folk art. The UFOs represent questions, or the "unknown," as well as the idea of a higher power. Here, I invite the viewer to contemplate what we believe as truth or fiction, especially in this moment of time when the act of questioning can, itself, be a complicated maneuver.
