About the artist.
This is where I look when creating paintings and drawings; portraits referential to perceived romantic notions of the past in relation to our own present. With this work I strive for ambiguous narrative; allusions to the sensual, the spiritual, the political, the spectral, and the unknown. There are implications of sinister and enigmatic forces, something beyond the veneer, something truthful, something absurd.
