"I can create my own reality, populate the world with my own beings and stretch the imagination. My paintings are confrontational, not comfortable. They require viewer participation. You have to imagine what it might be out there that gives a character such a countenance. What is he responding to? What is the nature of the abyss into which he gazes?"
