I want to create paintings that combine photo-realism with simulated motion. Reverse perspective is my current passion because it is the technique which seems best suited to accomplish this. I am also interested in creating the illusion of artificial lighting. The fact that one can lay down paint and make it seem that “the lights have been turned on” is fascinating.
I believe that each painting should be considered as a unique statement and be evaluated for its visual effect alone. No thought should be given to its method of execution. I want the viewer to have a “Wow!” experience, not just a “What a beautiful scene” experience.
