About my artwork
My works are observations, and commentaries on daily living through the use of allegory. The meanings behind the symbolic imagery, although personal, are meant to be interpreted in many different and individual ways. The subjects are often therianthropic figures; some animal parts morphing into the body elegantly, while some protrude instead. These zoomorphs are an extension or form of the “self”, a reflection of identity – not to be confused with spirit guides or totems. The paintings recognize and confront my own daimons, which Rollo May refers to as any motive that has the ability to take over a person. Issues that cause a personal struggle are not uncommon: concepts such as the challenge to affirm our respective anima, or self-actualization, and socioeconomic status are ideas that many people can relate to.

Hey Rory- the email on my laptop is screwy, so the message I just sent you bounced. After I decompress a bit from my show I'll reveal all the dark secrets of the artists cabala to you- and of course send an invoice with it.

Hi Rory, thank you for the kind words. I'm sitting in a santa fe motel right now, decompressing from an opening. Your work is fascinating and very rich. All the best.
