The body of work to which I have recently been devoting much of my time considers the subjects of man and nature, presenting these two seemingly contrary worlds side by side, and often interacting with one another. If, perhaps, there is a certain tension in this juxtaposition it is not that of enemies, battling for a claim to the earth, but rather of counterpoints in a great fugue of life, intertwining and overlapping in a harmony which, while often dissonant, ultimately creates a beautiful and ordered whole.

If there is a message in this work it is perhaps this: Beauty exists everywhere, from the grandest vista, to the humblest moment of daily passing, to the weariest corner of reality. You donít need to define it or give a reason for it. Just take a moment, forget everything else, and simply SEE.
