In my paintings I look for the quiet insignificance and hidden beauty in commonplace contemporary objects and locations. The fascination with compelling subtleties of everyday subjects and a reverent appreciation for the unexamined details of time and place. One of my recurring themes is a rural American landscape embodying a quiet pathos of abandonment and decay expressed in stillimages of rundown gas stations, lifeless general stores, weathered signage, and sprawling railroad yards. Ranging from lurid neon to incandescent urban glare, subtle variations of atmospheric and artificial lighting accentuate the quiet simplicity of my landscapes.
