Self Portrait, oil on canvas 36 x 48"
I am inspired by the human figure. I like to see the beauty
in the rawness, the straightforwardness of human flesh. I
like to paint without idealization of the figure, to the point
the viewer could be disturbed.|
In my painting, I also try to show how I see the moment that is happening, capturing the modelsí personality, emotion, and vibe in the atmosphere. I also am interested in series of self-portraits, which can be challenging but enjoyable as they capture my inner view to the point of being uncomfortable in my own skin.
Inspired strongly by Lucian Freud and Egon Schiele, my work is meant to be raw, without any sugarcoating. My art is meant to be a little askew of reality and distorted, so that it leaves a lasting impression on the viewer.
