The Condo Series

This body of work consists of over 300 small to larger still life paintings of flowers after the artist David Bomberg.

Compositionally, each painting has a heavy application of pure oil paint, thickly applied, in the manner of Nicolas de Staël.


Artist Statement

Art is work.

Therefore, an artist’s work is to make art, and much of it.

My floral works explore present moments as well as the moments in between. Flowers painted in a series are records of not only the bouquet itself but the moments of life that happen before, after, and in between.




Bio

I began drawing as a child and later studied art and art history. 

For nearly 20 years I have been involved in the arts - in the classroom and in the museum.

I teach art in college while continuing my studio practice.

My current research focus is on 20th century Post War British art, 20th century Post War Israeli art, and the School of Paris.

I am a husband, father, son, and brother.
