"I approach painting as the visual evidence of, and not a report on, an experience; not a representation of spiritual energy but a translation of it into light and texture, navigating the space between stasis and movement, between emergence and disappearance."

"Daily I document life in both paint and photograph. I merge the two disciplines into images that capture the heart and soul of the people I encounter and embody the essence of the places I go."

"I burn, I draw, I construct and deconstruct objects loaded with historical and social baggage and conflicting ideologies. Often I combine a particular Czech fatalism with an American optimism to strange effect."
