"I have a fascination with subtext � With reading between the lines -- Tuning in to the unspoken. Mine are portraits of imagined selves, damaged, passionate, hidden selves. Expressions of the moments between expressions -- Moments thought private, unobserved -- That moment of engagement when you are inadvertently shown the absolute truth -- The moment before the walls go up.
I mine the paintings of past masters for my models, lifting them free of their contextual worlds to imagine an alternate emotional life -- Their complex expressions and hidden agendas, the faces stripped of artifice, laid bare by ecstasy -- are set free to engage the modern viewer -- to catch and hold your gaze long enough to recall past, lost moments in yourself as you engage with the canvas � and to revisit the private emotions behind your own walls."
The paintings are casein on muslin and have a unique luminosity and absolutly matte finish. They light beautifully. They can safely roll for shipping and can be easily stretched by any reputable framer.
