Life Distilled

This is an ongoing collection of paintings, including portraits 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.
