Portraits

 

My work is about finding a harmony in dissonance. I want to force multiple "reads" of images and explore the deconstruction of their meanings. It is my pursuit to create paintings that appear both old and new, while juxtaposing overlays of images in a pastiche of my own personal semiotics.

I want to embrace the "sea of visual noise", that is so inherent to our contemporary way of seeing, while preserving my conviction towards painting in the grand tradition of figuration.
