From the Artist's Statement:

I am drawn to the simple forms of monuments and monoliths but also to their deep connection to life and death. My paintings are not about particular monuments or monoliths but I do want them to function on a similar, basic human level emotionally. I hope they are reflective of the contemporary human experience.
