  37. 37. Artist Statement     Primitives huddle in a cave, some listening to a hunter grunting out a story about the big kill, others watching painters render crude images of the same event on the rock walls. Has this scene changed that much? I believe not. We are huddled in this gallery doing much the same thing: listening, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching and seeing. No, nothing has changed. But do you believe?   When I approach an empty canvas, I carry with me every thing that ever happened to me since the day I was born. I even carry the genetic imprint of those cave dwellers huddled around the fire. I am the wolf yearning for the taste of blood and the deer intent on escape. All of it is there when I stand before the canvas, not in words, but in the feel of movement and the senses interacting with one another. A writer once told me that art is not about the artist or even about the finished product. It is about the journey that took him there: the hunt for a single truth. Painters can document this journey. The map is the painting itself.   I invite you to look at my paintings. Look at them with more than your eyes. Take in all you can in that’s around you. Let yourself go and feel. I invite you to go with me back to the cave…
