My Hitchcock paintings examine how we see, and, consequently, how we read visual information. It explores the full range of our visual experience, specifically the significance of peripheral and accidental vision.
The work establishes parallels between the function of an artist and that of the auteur film director (such as Alfred Hitchcock). Specifically, they facilitate the creation of meaning through visual experience, by a process of inclusion and, more significantly, of exclusion.
The paintings present orderly fragments of arbitrary experience derived from one place and time, offering a dynamic sense of space, movement, and feeling. The sequence of images suggests, but does not disclose, a narrative.
