The constrained nature of the figure is meant to reflect what it feels like in isolation, to desire connection and feel safe. The figure depicted here may be trapped, or constrained by the boarder of the picture plane, but the life within him is remains vibrant and full of potential.
I started this before the shutdown and all the political unrest in 2020. I mention this, because when it comes to my art, the message is never overtly political. Some may see this piece that way and that’s fine. It truly is in the eye of the beholder.
What I strive to do, is create an open ended story shrouded in a little mystery. That way, the work can have multiple meanings for now and in the future. Who knows the impact it will have a year or 20 years from now?
As with all my work, I abstract the human form and reorganize the human body, using multiple viewpoints of the model. This painting contains six - seven different views of multiple models. She isn't meant to represent one person, or one moment in time, she a sequence and an idea that we are comprised of many experiences."
