The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
I see the creative act as a vital and intuitive means to make sense of myself, my environment and the relationship between the two. The process I use is rooted in an ability to draw from life but the images I render are found completely in the imagination. Rather than trying to draw or paint one particular moment in time, I want to take all of my observations, combine them and allow their form to shift and change under the influence of the unconscious. I believe that only through the workings of the unconscious can I transform the specific experience of my day to day life into something more universal. The resultant images often utilize the human figure as a medium for exploring nature's cycle of death and resurrection.
