In his own words, "The object of my art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of a much greater intensity. To represent not only the outward superficial appearance of my subject matter, but their concealed significance. It is in my created imagery that I hope to reveal the narrative which is embedded in each of the artworks two-dimensional restrictions”.
