Historical Context:
"I began painting at the age of five. Encouraged and supported along the way, I continue to grow as an artist. My work is based on what I call "combinism". This is the combining of all the tools of the artist. The formal structural tools of color, line and form are used in a way that values the works throughout art history. Presenting the work in a somewhat raw state, reveals to the viewer the evidence or footprints of the creative process. The physical act of applying paint to a surface is as much a part of the piece as any other, including subject matter, color or the overall shape." - Mark Wilkens
