Artist Statement, 2012
Human faces are the medium for soul-meetings. Archetypal expressions offer gateways into our deeper, inner realms. This series uniquely blends modern graphite portraits with stylized abstractions in acrylic and paint marker. The faces read like a story woven of shadow and light, chosen to illustrate a transcendent human moment.
Merging meticulous realism with intricate, flowing paintwork explores how our apparent reality connects with alternate realms of emotion, meaning, subconsciousness, and true essence. Through precise craftsmanship and inspired insight, I offer these experiences of awareness to uplift and enjoy.
