As we walk through life, we are not just the physical body we occupy. We cast shadows all around us, and visit our reflection on surfaces. The shadows and reflections are as much a part of us, however temporary, as the body we carry. What we really are at any given time is the memory of a physical moment, a snapshot in time.


Man's ongoing struggle with loneliness and longing for meaning are very predominant in these works. These paintings are my attempt to freeze time, leaving the world a reminder of just how fleeting life is, and how amazing the human creature is that experiences it.
