Painting portraits that render human proximity and transactions, I ponder the conditions and connections that envelope and enmesh people in my life. From such considerations derive the cerebral residue crucial to the physical arrival of my work as it mimics past events, complicated relationships, and forgotten fond wishes. Human insecurities slip and (ex)change when people interact with one another and contemporary portraiture needs to shift so as to reflect its changed subjects. Through the lens of painstakingly observed disorientations I ongoingly, with great care, create them anew in order to attempt an understanding of them.
