Artist's Statement:

As a professor of philosophy, I live in a world of words and analytical argumentation.  At times, it is hard to keep in mind the big questions that each of us must face in our lives.  Nonetheless, the big questions are important and there is more to them than analytical argumentation.  Traditionally, the emotional content that leads us to the big questions has been ignored. My work in philosophy has been to understand the role experience and emotions play when finding our own answers to the big questions. When I paint, this emotional content emerges.  My aim is to make philosophical questions deeply and personally felt. Frequently, I use the human figure and portraits as a way to convey the emotions that inform our beliefs and actions. But landscapes also carry emotional content, especially the emotional connections we have to place. The result is that making art makes my professional life as a philosopher more interesting and my professional occupation allows me to infuse my art with meaning. $200 value.
