"Falling Apart / Coming Together: Portraits"

“Who do you see when I look at you?” “Who do I see when you look at me?”

My interest in portraiture is about capturing a 'higher frequency' of vibration - both from my
subject and my own internal response to that subject.. The subject may be a memory, fantasy,
off the TV, Internet - or sitting in front of me in the studio.

What's most important is that I feel a certain spark, an interest, that captures my inner attention -
pulls it out of my head and down into my heart and emotions. It's not as much about capturing a
likeness, as it is about capturing something 'essential'. I want to see what the paint has to say,
rather than say what I want with the paint. In this way, something vital and alive can be created."
Each portrait is 20"X16", oil on canvas.
