INVENTED PEOPLE

 

This series of paintings are exercises in understanding my memories and myself.  Whether the painting is a geographic place that I’m reflecting on, or a portrait that possesses qualities of someone that I know, I always trying to push the subconscious.  I’m pulling from imagery from imagination, the Internet, paintings, and antiquity.
I create these sketches in the hope to achieve ideas for full bodies of work that best represent me, and my relationship with the world.
