I work in many media, but my practice centers around painting. I explore a broad territory, involving religious, sexual and emotional experience, between which I find interesting interactions or parallels. My work asks a lot of what it is to feel these things, and what comes with these feelings, as for me it is often a complex web. There is a strong reference to religious art in my work, and I use these references as a foundation for my contemporary subject matter, which opens it to discourse on its meaning. The assemblage of pornographic and saintly, of tortured and blissful subjects is how I explore my ideas. I see the beauty of experience, of the religious painting, of pain and of pleasure all lending to each other. My paintings are an unending series of questions and explorations of what it is to experience.
