I'm a contemporary representational painter working mainly in oils. My subject is people, whom I depict in sometimes highly contrived situations (though sometimes not).
My other pursuit is philosophical-scientific: understanding how representational paintings function as first-person reports of artists' conscious experience.
In the Links section (above), you'll find a 20-minute film titled The Painters Vision" that introduces my theoretical work. Theres also Representational Painting and Consciousness, a published paper; and talks Ive given at conferences in Tucson, La Jolla, and Miami.
Shown here: "Laborers, Amherst" (detail), oil on linen, 36 x 60 in. Other views are in the Portfolio section.
