The imagery created in these paintings is based on an emotional and linguistic nurturing that exists between the creator and the work. When strokes are put down on the canvas each and every stroke is a word or visual energy that can be read. This composition of words allows the figures to interact with one another, the painter, and the viewer. Emotions and language by nature evolve over time along with the paintings. The language stays the same but the painter merely learns more words.
