“Through a focus on hyperrealism, my paintings are reflections of identity, dimension, and the ephemeral visual relationships around us. Using mainly oil paint as my medium, I create sensitive portraits that capture fleeting moments that affect our emotional state from a singular glance, under the aegis of a heightened sense of reality.
My current bodies of work are heavily focused on light, shadow and dimension, and how the element of light can alter the relationship of a viewer and subject. The goal being to propel the audience to connect to one transient moment, captured through mood, established from the control of light and shadow.
I do not merely want to meticulously capture an image, but rather breathe a vital life force into transformed renditions of the world around me. I want my pieces to evoke a deep sense of emotion-influenced not only from an in-depth tangibility executed through a high level of detail, but married with a sincere passionate portrayal of contemporary art.”
