I am always interested in what lies beneath the surface. I create portraiture and figurative images to provoke. I reveal the inner workings of the body, and the inner workings of the human psyche, by way of showing figurative works that range from what is seen by the eye to what is imagined by the mind, showing the exterior flesh cut away, revealing the inner workings of the body, and revealing all of the complicated muscles, tendons, arteries, fat and bone that lies within. The imagined figures explore the inner workings of the mind.
My images start with any number of methods. I've created sculptures out of clay to create my own models, I've taken photographs of myself for self portraiture, I've had people model for me, and I've created digital collages in Photoshop as reference to made up beings.
Every piece of artwork is a very rewarding exploration.
