I use the term Symbolic Narrative to describe my art. It is a form of expression somewhere between realism and abstraction. As in realism, my work contains recognizable figures and objects. Yet, unlike historical narrative, the viewer is not being told a particular story of a past event, frozen in time. The viewer is assumed to be creating a personal story in dialog with the art form. The symbolic elements are given meaning only through dialog in the viewers mind. Thus, there is a connection between the search for understanding about existence, and the narratives which we each create in that search.
