Life Distilled

This is an ongoing collection of paintings, including portraits, figures and still life. Inspired by the ephemeral nature of life, subjects are depicted, as if they are fluctuating between a refined and unrefined state; A process that I call “Life Distilled”. By rendering detail 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.
