My paintings depict people, but they are un-named. Although their subjects are recognizable as human figures upon first sight, they represent another side of reality to me. The many aspects of each of us can be shown through color, line, and form, but also through gestures, positions, and facial expressions. It is the latter features I choose to emphasize in transferring my inner figures into my paintings. The unavoidable tension and energy that results from this proximity is an essential part of my images. I hope to bring the viewer into this relm through the figures closeness to the picture plane and further engage the viewer through the position of the body. In these ways, I attempt to represent universal human behaviors.
