ARTIST STATEMENT

My paintings and works on paper are usually improvised from the start. I begin a work very spontaneously, often with it lying on the ground and soaked with water to make the colors flow.

Whatever the style or subject, my intention is to both delight eye and stimulate the viewer�s imagination while my political leanings are always towards those of the Surrealists: ie leftist, anti-Fascist, progressive, liberal,etc.

These works constitute warnings about loosing the dogs of war.
