My focus is on conveying realism through the lens of abstraction “¦ a push-and-pull of near-photorealistic details with the carefully controlled use of visual elements that question that very realism. I love the interplay of form and composition ‘ the three-dimensionality and solidity of the figure deliberately altered by various elements of design, to increase visual harmony and add emotional depth. With an emphasis on abstract aesthetics over narrative context, the figures I paint function almost as design elements themselves, evoking emotion without defining it – and encouraging the viewer to approach each painting within the framework of his or her unique experiences and memories.
