"In my work I play with existing narratives found in folklore, mythology or children's literature whilst attempting to 'mythologize' modern phenomena. Good and Evil, the Grotesque and the Beautiful, and Tragedy and Comedy co-exist through the 'narratives' depicted in my paintings as well as references to the 'outsiders', 'freaks', and 'monsters' that may be found in a Diane Arbus photograph, an Anderson fairytale or a Goya etching. The figures depicted in the paintings are hybrids of familiar characters from folktales, and people, real or imagined, drawn from my memory as a child.”
His work refers to traditional landscape and figure painting but the landscapes and figures represented in his paintings are contemporary. His various groups of work have dealt with violence (Violare), childhood memory, (The Picture Book Paintings), and social narrative (Cautionary Tales and Devolvers). All works are related through consistent themes of isolation, duality, and a dark seam existing within Human nature.
