The current project "Engage" explores each particular subject's personality and how those attributes are expressed on both a outward physical and psychological level. Through each individual work, the viewer can become intimately acquainted with the subject not only representationally, but on an emotional, intellectual, and moral level.
Anatomical incorrectness with impossible scenery together combine to create a mythological symbolism individual to each subject. Through the use of mixed media, along with dense imagery and texture, a subtle tension is created on each surface and the viewer is invited to interpret what is clearly stated, and what remains to be said.
