In my paintings I try to capture the true essence of the subject in a abstract/impressionist way.
Most of the work is done using a palette knife and then balanced with delicate brush work. The eyes and features are often fractured and just out of reach obscured by chaotic brush and knife rendering. The subjects and backgrounds continually evolve and submerge leaving behind unplanned haunting images.
I aim to meet the subject on a subliminal level through study of character. I don’t see the paintings as portraits, but more as a innate look within at the true complexity of mind, soul, drive, reason and creativity.
