“As a realist painter I deal in contradiction. I produce images that ostensibly portray an objective view of reality, a seemingly concrete environment that one might inhabit and navigate. In truth, of course, this is an illusion- a trick played in pigment and oil on a flat surface.

The scenes depicted are completely synthetic, with details drawn from multiple sources and vantage points, rather than a single real place that one might actually visit. These disparate elements are woven together in a fashion that is convincing enough to suspend disbelief for the viewer. In this way a painting can become more than mere reportage- it can allude to something larger and become greater than just the sum of its parts.”
