Oil on Board
40 x 26 in.
For me painting is way to communicate what words cannot. Through one frame a story is told, with lingering questions hanging and possible scenarios left for the viewer’s own interpretation. This is one of the many reasons why painting is so unique. Like a good poem, it has few opportunities to reach its audience in way that can leave a strong lasting impression. My paintings imagery can range from strong to soft depending what kind of emotion I want to have as an underlying tone.
Sometimes their stories are clear and other times they are more ambiguous. Their content does not always carry its story line, instead I try and utilize the language of the paint. When manipulated well it can bend the lines of what is reality and what could be illusion, creating a world with boundless limitations.
