Statement

Having started out with huge oil painting chock-a-block with detail, I have continuously distilled technique and fine-tuned my focus so much so that even my language has changed. Not only in the subject matter, this progression of ideas has been like a peeling back of layers in each successive work. Reducing color, Clutter, size as well as the layering that was characteristic of my earlier works, my current work has become more austere, and elemental but conversely, the depth of expression has become more intimate, more in-tune with the worker and the subject. In the latter half of this work, I have eliminated even color to suggest not just the blurring of the lines between the man and the metal but the total boundary less amalgamation of the scrap and the worker- giving life to the scrape by making it an integral part of the human being. Where does one begin and the other end?
