We are inevitably visited by unforeseen circumstances - painful, yet precious - that test our emotional limits and open our eyes to the raw truth of existence. These sudden interruptions change our paths and are imprinted in our memories, reappearing throughout our lives. In contrast to mindless shock and awe tactics so commonly seen in todays art, intended to manufacture controversy, we need to concentrate on images that trigger and evoke a range of universal human emotions, acting as therapy on canvas. Regardless of sex, race or station in life, the imagery should connect us on a basic level to the human experience. Surrealism, a style of art that allows the observer to let go of his restraints and see the world as it may be represented in the subconscious mind. It is a style that can intertwine symbolism and narrative representation creating a platform for an abstract thought. For me as an artist this process from beginning to end becomes a trance-like state of mind in which the outside world melts away and art becomes reality. When I first touch the brush to the canvas the experience becomes an intangible exhilaration. Always evolving and forever changing surrealism is my game.
