From my sketch book.
Vine charcoal on paper, 14" x 11".
These sketch heads are a good warm up and are often drawn from life or a combination of reference material and my own intuitive drawing process. I try to go beyond a mere likeness and attempt to capture something about the inherent character of the subject. I try to bring the internal to the exterior.
Fine Artist and occasional Illustrator.
My art is an exercise of interpretation, of exploring the inner world of the subject. We are currently experiencing a period of fragmentation and upheaval in our norms, beliefs and identity, causing humanity great cultural distress and personal existential turmoil. I attempt to reveal something not readily identifiable, to translate emotions simmering just below surface of the model or subject, to bring the interior to the exterior.
