Oil on canvas, 2015, 42"w x 30"h

My current body of work consists of many large-scale oil paintings that reflect my peers and their environments. I create truthful portraits as a way to share my perspective as a spectator of contemporary life. As a starting point, I take snapshots of people within their own domestic space. Photography is a crucial process for documentation of the human condition. In these images the viewer is an intruder staring at the intimate setting that only the artist has access to. The translation of information into paint deconstructs the image further into my subjective interpretation of the moment.
