TO FIGURE

" TO FIGURE..." is an oil painting referencing the abstract cuts of Rei Kawakubo from Comme des Garcons. Its title plays with language and content - 'to'= 'two' figures that are in the painting. I was also thinking about how one understands a 'thing' can often mean conjuring images- in that we have to 'figure' that 'thing' in our minds in some way and before we reach a clear understanding of that 'thing' it is essentially in a state of formation or ambiguous...

PAS DE DEUX


PAS DE DEUX 
oil on canvas, 4 x 4 ft



I love painting. I love color, I love charging an object, in this case corsets and I can't help but be a romantic about my craft. I have so much to learn, each painting is an unfolding narrative which constantly surprises me. Painting makes me feel good.

bull's final act-coming out of chaos

A timely piece given the state of our economy.
 Mischievous but ultimately benevolent, one just has to get to know this magnificent creature.
Firstly,  the bull is both male and female. Secondly it is both grounded and worldly. Thirdly as a species made from the universe's natural heavens it knows how to play the game where everyone wins.
