Procession

Procession

14" diam 
Oil on Aluminum
Unframed

Procession has multiple meanings. The hands and the composition evoke movement while at the same time the figure imbues an air of quiet acceptance. The structure of the figure is in flux. She is not quite there. She is lost in the procession of hands and their rhythmic spiral.

Hair #2 - Painting Study of Hair

This is an oil painting study of hair. The way her hair is draped over her mouth contains a psychological conflict I enjoyed exploring with this piece. This piece does not contain an overt meaning, the viewer can decide for themselves the true meaning of Hair #2. However, an oil painting study like this one offers me an opportunity to experiment with some of the basic elements of art in a smaller format. The main reason I painted this piece was to study the light and structure of the skin along with the volume and movement of hair. I am really happy with the final results.

Hair - A Portrait Study

This is a portrait painting study of hair.  I like the contemplative mood of the figure and the immediacy and movement of the paint. Unlike my more finished works, studies offer me an opportunity to experiment with some of the basic elements of art. In this case I was experimenting with brush work and the effects of keeping the movement of the paint active. I like the static volumetic figure contrasted with the linear movement of the hair. A sister painting - Hair #2 - can be found here.

An Imaginary Grasp - oil painting

This oval oil painting is on aluminum (Dibond). This painting is a good example of my use of multiple figures and faces to create a more complex composition. The meaning behind most of my work is not overt. The narrative depth is quiet, personal, and meant to be left to the viewer to define. The saturated (pinks, purple and green) colors combined with the overlapping poses are a device used to abstract the figure and bring conflict to the scene without loosing the structure of the human form. This piece like so many of my paintings is a delicate dance between photo realism and abstraction, peppered with psychological undertones. I hope this piece is both beautiful and haunting at the same time.

Dreamtank - Work in Progress

The round (Tondo) composition of the aluminum support features multiple figures in the middle of the circular composition. The painting is both realistic and surreal. The synthetic and chromatically pure paints defy the traditionally painted figures, giving it a synthetic and emotive air. The figure is confined by the circle. creating a repeating pattern of feet,  heads and hands.  The repeated figure is meant to evoke the passage of time as one segmented figure fades into the other and continues in a never ending loop. What does it mean? Don't think too hard. This piece was just an interesting and fun design to make and I thought it looked like the figure was in the middle of a crazy dream, so I named it Dreamtank. "Dreamtank" can be dislayed in any direction.
