Life Distilled

This is an ongoing collection of my paintings, including portraits, figures and still life. I’m inspired by the ephemeral nature of life and like to depict my subjects as if their impermanent nature is being revealed; A process that I call “Life Distilled”. By rendering numerous details of my subject, while also leaving much unresolved, I attempt to make paintings that explore a place between the fixed and the fleeting. Whether through a person’s eyes or through a layer of glass, I attempt to “draw out” something that is beyond the subject’s surface and is in fact, beyond seeing itself.
