Oil/Wax on Baltic Birch
24" Tondos (unframed)
My representation of the figure has been informed by studio life drawing and by a knowledge of anatomy and psychology gained through careers in surgical and psychological fields. I want the viewer to see what I have seen, to think about the person and their situation rather than let pure representational poses close down possibilities.
Gestures, body language.... a moment in time are meant to remind the viewer of some of the subtleties in life.
Placing the image in a space defined by color but void of background objects presses the viewer to focus on the person or his/her situation.
