Red Chucks is an oil-on-canvas painting featuring rich color and intricate detail. This painting celebrates American's great style and world-wide fashion influence. Converse high tops were initially designed for basketball players. Over time, these sneakers transitioned off the court and onto the street. They are an iconic staple of American fashion. Chuck Taylors are one of my favorite subjects to paint, not only because of their popularity, but because they create such a great visual.

STATEMENT

The painting process—using brushes, paint, and canvas to convey my vision— never fails to inspire and challenge me. I try to manipulate the paint in a beautiful way, and I choose subjects and employ methods I hope will help viewers connect emotionally with my paintings. I love hearing how a viewer’s reaction to one of my works compares to my intent when I created it. Broken color, chiaroscuro, temperature shifts, intense color, and dramatic sizing are some of the methods I use to draw the viewer in. I am fascinated by iconic imagery from American life. Everyday objects we take for granted are rich in character, history, and beauty that we can better appreciate when we take the time to look at them with fresh eyes. The paintings I create may feature a single object—a rotary telephone, a gumball machine, a car, or a beat-up baseball—or a set of objects grouped to suggest their relationship. After drawing the viewer in through the outer shell of technique, I hope a work’s composition elicits fresh thought and discussion about the subject and its significance in American culture and to the viewer themselves.
