Artist Statement: "I paint immenseness and smallness, often together. I paint totems and monuments: huge mountains, blocky buildings, ancient columns. I also paint small onlookers and cohabitors: little worms, agape eyeballs, goofy vegetables. There is a sweep of hugeness, but also of wonkiness and humor."
