This work resides at the intersection of character and form. Discernible figures enact scenarios that leave room for interpretation. Bold sweeping gestures, winding limbs, floating bodies, crying angels all cross paths imbuing each image with narrative potential that exceeds the decorative. These works are heavily content driven while leaving out the didacticism of a straightforward portrait style. Codes and symbols run through each canvas, enriching a strengthening system of language which borrows from underground comix, abstract figuration, formalists, and surrealists. As this language develops, more rich and complex stories are able to unfold.
