About the Artist
An American artist living in France since 1974, his work is exhibited in the USA, England, Switzerland and France. Galleries and numerous exhibitions include: Centre Georges Pompidou, FIAC, Figuration Critique. His intensely realist paintings explore the contrasts of nature and civilization. Director of the Atelier Neo Medici in Monflanquin and Villeneuve- sur-Lot in the South of France. He has been teaching painting and drawing since 1996.
The paintings and drawings in this body of work are representations of “emotional moments;” explorations of the human condition. Both spiritual and introspective in purpose, I am interested in conveying the dynamics of relationships and the aloneness one must confront and accept in this world. It is with the embracing of that idea that brings us to the understanding of our oneness, our singular humanity and allows us to feel at peace to explore and express our loves, fears, wants, needs and hope.
These paintings possess a focus that reflects a rigorous training. What one perceives as polish is essentially obsessive preoccupation with allowing the image its own life.
