Artist's Statement:
My recent work has focused on portraits of people i have encountered since moving to a new city. I photograph the subjects, and from a plethora of images, select ones that for me carry an emotional resonance. I focus on images of reflection or distraction, essentially private moments that i hope will convay some of the essence of living in a modern city. I then paint the images at enlarged scale, magnifying this impression and concentrating on quality of mark to communicate the psychological state of the subject. I aim to produce paintings that express the universal through the specific.
