My Profession: Art
About my work:
My paintings begin with the figure, notably, the face. However, I do not consider my work portraiture because I am not trying to tell an individual story about my subjects. The individuals are unadorned and expressionless. The distressed surface literally and figuratively distances the individuals depicted from the viewer. People may read their own personal experiences into the faces. I think the basic recognition of human beings as beautiful, ugly, and ultimately complicated creatures supersedes personal interpretation and responses.
