Artist Statement

A modern artist questions technique; they believe that art should free like a drunk driver on the freeway.

A contemporary artist questions an idea; If one were to simply put a urinal into an art gallery, does it become art?

A meta-modernist is both. I consider myself a meta-modernist.

Unlike modern art, my art requires no explanation as to what the viewer is looking at. Unlike contemporary art my art will never be mistaken for trash.

I am an oil painter who focuses on creating realism.

I follow the meta-modern philosophy of Stuckism.

The Stuckist gives up on shock, novelty, gimmick, and petting Coco.

The Stuckist prefers process over cleverness, realism over abstraction, humour over wittiness and painting over smugness. Most of the time the Stuckist dies alone.
