    Working from photographic sources – shots from TV and video, images culled from magazines and catalogues and his own photographs. His paintings elude straightforward classification: mundane images that are abstracted into a kind of mannerism of the everyday. Each painting is delicately executed through a slow and careful process creating a luminous atmosphere that makes the paintings glow with a strange, otherworldly richness of light. Although the compositions of his paintings are often energetic and active, often making use of vertiginous angles and dramatic shifts in focus, they are unique in every way. As a result, his paintings seem like freeze-frames that pause the visual process, transforming it into an arresting, material instant.
