Skylight Gallery

Artist's Statement

Evolutions is a series of paintings that represents individual human development and that of civilization as a whole. Anthropomorphic forms are the metaphor. Contemporary advertisements, galactic projections, and archeological findings are married with oil paint on canvas, inventing a reality of magic and humor that challenges the viewer's imagination and perception. In combining these diverse images, the past is revisited, the future anticipated, and the present immortalized.

Outlaws, Kings and Queens, Diplomats, and Virgins, they transcend gender, religion, race, and political boundaries. Simultaneously ancient, contemporary, and futuristic these icons to humanity are each a sentient presence designed to delight and jolt.

It is a series of cosmic loops. Hi-tech and mummies have run full circle. Evolutions are images for all time.
