And finally, this is the official statement approved by Hostileart:

 

I consider myself to be a photorealist whose composition and style has modernist tendencies.  My work focuses on compositions that flatten space in an effort to create intriguing abstraction.  My images are an exploration of a reality that challenges prevailing sentiments about art and culture.  I present imagery that encourages the viewer to look beyond the obvious and sense the subtle; to sense what is there or not there.  So there.
