“We all seek to find a sense of belonging in this world. Instinctively everyone needs to feel like they are a part of something bigger than themselves. We need a tribe. Finding a sense of belonging is often achieved through ritual, symbolism and of course art. My own personal iconography and symbolism is the departure point in this painting. They are abstract paintings and drawings of shields either literal or symbolic. The shapes and gestures are powerful. They can be considered talismans to protect the bearer from harm.”
