Paintings are valuable because they are beautiful and/or interesting. My work is probably more the latter.
Most of my work shows an interest in color theory. Sometimes bold color combinations are carefully contained within preci-sion taped off edges. Other times I apply color in brash strokes from a pallet knife.
I often incorporate bits of popular culture including iconic objects, brand names, logos and characters. These cultural refer-ences allow the paintings to reach out beyond their 4 edges and pull in meaning and messages from the world at large.
