In my work, turn of the century circus clowns,West African monkeys, and Japanese dogs are set against stucco backgrounds painted with Rococo cartouches, iridescent damask, and ogee patterns from the 1960s. My paintings are hybrids distilling life experience and observation with visual culture. Like a principle in physics, one mass displaces another in space, one motif dislocates another in the paintings. Errant circles that could have escaped from an early modern painting slide across the surface, organizing themselves into tidy rows, then meander off the picture plane. Layer on layer, the result is cross-cultural dislocation, a metaphor for painting in our digital world. Traditional painting for our digital age.
