BROKEN PAINTINGS        Why do I break the paintings?  To depict the tensions created by the often violent and unwelcome interruptions of the physical world into our interior landscapes, those inner refuges we hold close to us and try to inhabit in secret peace. So we pick up the pieces and carry with us a broken image of that shattered perfection, those moments, feelings and memories in our hearts and minds, no longer perfect, but somehow still whole, in a new, fragile, and imperfect way.
