Higher Ground, 2007, gouache on paper, 22" x 36"
My works in recent years selectively re-create the urban landscape of Miami, inventing panoramas that comprise architecture, surface decoration, signs on buildings and abstract symbols for atmosphere and landscape. In my paintings I am inventing new spaces based on my observations of urban vernacular architecture and graphic communication. The animated contemporary folklore which results generates the excitement at being in a new place while retaining familiar markers of everyday life.

"My goal as an artist is to use imagery to penetrate the veneer of everyday appearances, to activate and bring to the surface latent and surprising possibilities within. My process is about the freedom derived from re-arranging a set of givens from the visible world. "
