On August 13th from 7pm to 9pm there will be an opening reception held for my show at Fools and Horses on Broadway Avenue. It's free to attend and they have coffee and drinks available. The paintings will be up from August 6 until the first week of November. I hope to see you all there!
Face/Value is a series of paintings which explores identity and ambiguity in the interpretation of individuals. The series is influenced by contemporary figurative artists and my own interpretations and values in the world and art; it draws on the belief that as human beings, the most relatable representation is that of ourselves.
The paintings are rendered in broad strokes and limited colour palettes which aims to create a sense of ethereality and non-permanence. Through the obfuscation and omission of detail, the viewer is invited to draw their own conclusions on the subjects which, though distinct and identifiably human, correspond to no particular person living or dead.
