Statement from Denise Ticer, Art Director Santa Fe ArtWorld
There is something so honest about the world in your work, human nature and the affect as it impacts the individual who falls prey to it. It is as though you lay great insight into canvas. Your work is reminiscent of loneliness in society, the isolation there of. Something almost austere, like the realization of what we have created in our environment, so willing to be a part of but wanting to escape. You have captured the confines of man and/or woman in the structure of their mind, or is it the world they have built for themselves that destroys them, caused their isolation, and with even the remains of earthly environment affected by it. Death of life.
The Wait and Still Life with 4 Apples, defines the distance woman has made between herself and the outside world with the exit being so far away to be almost not there at all. The Black Bowl, almost like the empty head, save for the apple, one fruitful thought of man as automation. The wretchedness of physical form as it deteriorates and thus needs the miracles of modern medicine as in Milliner with Colostomy. Dead of Night seems as though the city breaths with life, a life that closes in suffocates us. As depicted in Snowy Night and Winter Storm, even the life of nature is lost to man-the snow kept from earth by our towering roof tops. The insignificance of it all.
