Artist’s Statement: “I have been working on more formal and restrained paintings lately, and decided to loosen up by revisiting a series I did a few years ago inspired by the work of Cy Twombly, Julian Schnabel and various other painters of gestural and somewhat graffiti-like strokes. Those were sold long ago. These new paintings incorporate an array of mediums; it's a very complex surface. To me they have an urban and edgy feel to them. I typically sell in New Orleans but have been keeping some work back to offer exclusively online in order to make it available to collectors elsewhere."
