ABSTRACT FIGURES


Trapped in Light

This piece involved an experimental style change that resulted in a unique mood. "Trapped in Light" illustrates the pressures of playing a social role when you feel as if there is a constant spotlight on you. This spotlight is the social expectations of our society and it tells you what to say what to think and how to react to other people. This spot light makes us feel as if we are performing for each other and just trying not to go off script.

Trapped in Light

Loss of Singularity

This piece deals with the strains of the outside world and how they pull at and challenge our inner being. There are many people and circumstances in life that tell us to do just about anything but listen to ourselves. We are asked to consider logic, reason and the opinions of other people. But we are never taught to listen to what we truly feel. I encourage you to calculate your own internal compass and allow it to guide you above all else.

Loss of Singularity

Watching Over

*Sold*This painting is dedicated to those who have left us. In some way we all leave a mark on this earth by living on it, our thoughts, decisions and actions all leave microscopic impacts that help shape the collective reality. When another life is completed they humbly return the body that they had borrowed and leave this reality. We feel the emptiness that is left behind but the ones we have lost will always live in our hearts with freedom.

The Last Moment

*Sold*This new robot piece enhances the human nature of these robotic beings and shows that humanity can exist in the most unlikely places. When we have trouble understanding things that are different than us it is important for us to empathize and look at the world through their eyes. There are many things in this world that can seem strange or foreign and if we let go of our prejudice we can move forward with an open heart.

Vulnerability

This piece explores the human ability to let go and be vulnerable with nature and allow it to comfort us and give us energy. The natural world exists with it's own ebb and flow and it can be beneficial for us to observe and learn from it.

Moment

Moment

Among the Roots

*Sold* This piece developed out of an earlier piece called Entangled because I wanted to create an environment for a figure to exist in. This person is protected within this abstract realm that can be seen as roots, water or branches. .

Among the Roots

Mother Nature

This was a significant piece in my conceptual merging of humans and landscapes because of its balance of the representational and non-representational. The landscape breathes in and out of the abstract world allowing for emotion to exist at the forefront.

Hold On

This piece was a present for my girlfriend. In it I was trying to imitate the loose brush technique that I used in "Moment." I would say I completed this goal considering she did not recognize the figures until I pointed them out to her.
