Listed is one of my contemporary original figure paintings. The piece depicts an abstracted male portrait and is approximately life-sized. I am inspired by classical themes and bring a contemporary perspective into my work through expressive line and minimal yet dynamic compositions.

---------ARTIST STATEMENT--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"...and around his head the fair goddess set thick a golden cloud, and forth from the man made blaze a gleaming fire... there he stood and shouted... and when they heard the brazen voice of the son of Aeacus the hearts of all were dismayed." - Homer, The Iliad

I am influenced by the classical and the romantic, striving to mimic their monumentality, divinity and quiet brutality in my own work. Through paint and line I seek to capture the light of existence, that "gleaming fire", as well as to portray its gravity. I strive to celebrate the figure, its mysterious power and charisma.
