The New Narrative:
“The New Narrative" paintings continue utilizing a time line for compositional arrangement. The information or data which is represented is organized top to bottom and back to front to signify subject matter’s relationship to each other’s location on the historical timeline. The tradition within painting’s golden age hold the forms of portrait, landscape and still life and are intentionally referenced through similar types of subject matter and made from similar materials but updated with contemporary color and light. The shift or oscillation from the previous abstract work, which included the same sorts of data like history, myth, mass culture and science, to works containing more realism nourishes my curiosity about the direction of my painting practice and offers new audiences, uninitiated to my abstraction, an opportunity to join the discourse.
