My work of arts signify the cross-examination of emotions, structures, systems and general concepts collected within society. I am continually trying to transfer such feelings, and my interpretation of life into a historically-based art form such as portraits of women, men and children.
I treat my works as poetry, which captivates the viewer at first glance and inundates you in emotion. My paintings allow you to find compassion within yourself; they act as a trigger to tap into a human through life-like portraits. In my work, every blemish, scar or intricate feature in it helps express the truth in uncomfortable and Euphoria situations, and challenges I have experienced with a broad spectrum of displayed emotion through tears, despair, happiness and affinity. On encounter of my piece, you're constrained to feel connected, and searching for ways to console or free the subject from anxiety.
When putting paint to the canvas, I explore the refinements of the human figure. The facial composition is a crucial element I explore in my paintings. The movement of tissues, hair and sweat are components of work to make it dynamic, manipulating human figure to recreate a character that conveys a vivid message to the heart.
