These paintings are an intuitive response to unresolved aspects of the human experience. It is a delicate balance of manipulating the paint while allowing it to reveal something unexpected about the human psyche. The fluidity of the medium metaphorically speaks of our constant internal transformation. Through bold and visceral brush strokes, the undigested parts manifest into something vaguely reminiscent of the human form. Struggling between form and formless, they teeter between figuration and abstraction. These portraits mirror back to us the comically absurd and sometimes monstrous states we confront within our own sense of identity.
