In the paintings, wood burnings and carved reliefs in this show:

I am concerned with what I saw- not what I see- the paintings in this show represent various memories, dreams and reflections that are influenced from the passage of time and the layers of different things that happen around the ideas I attempt to transmit. 

All the pieces are semi abstract inasmuch as they are representing an emotion or event and to some extent give visual clues as to what they are about. For example- in “DRIVING IN A CAR”, it looks like a cockpit of a modern car and also reflects the feelings of a passing landscape going by. All the pieces have a similar semi representational story of some sort. Emotional content is the goal of all my art. For me- Art is a verb- something that changes or moves. Perhaps this is why I depend on a strong sense of interaction and collaboration with the viewer.
