A form of physical poetry is displayed using Hollywoodesque like sculptures as models absorbed through the artist’s lens. Utilizing the magazine page and its contents, the paintings in this series may have a cinematic feel, with a dose of film noir. My painting may represent a transformation, where the artist is a conductor, transferring information from unlikely settings. Applying radiant yellows, reds, and vibrant whites that can suddenly turn the scene into a time traveling sci-fi looking landscape. In this painting series, there is a recurring theme of Life-affirming. The thoughts of what is going on around them. The moments looking like a kaleidoscopic composition of color, I create a surreal image, visually in place and time. At other times I arrange colors on top of each other in a more festive way. Creating ambiguity and mysterious characters in the paintings.
