About MeI strive to make objects that are aesthetically pleasing. The use of photography, computer software, and projection give the work a contemporary feel, while thinned out acrylic and gouache keep with the tradition of paint on canvas. The flattened areas of vibrant color and larger than life portraits relate to the era of pop art, while still maintaining a relationship with the advancing technology of computer art. Exhibiting the use of, what I like to call, analog vector graphics, the pieces are assembled with a certain disregard for the realism of the original photographic portrait.
The end result is an aesthetic object that uses color and texture to entice the viewerâs eye. The conceptual ideas behind the work are for the observer to interpret on their own, or to not interpret at all. The idea is that the pieces are aesthetic and whether you like them or not, they have an immediate presence. They are not difficult to comprehend visually or conceptually.
I'm here to find models for the aforementioned pieces. If you're interested in being a part of one of these pieces, please contact me.
