Babies>Branches>Business














For some reason it won't let me post the beginning to the end, so I had to post it vice versa. But this painting started as a tree(branches). Then while painting the tree, it started turning into a bunch of businessmen. As the bussinessmen started to pop out more and more, it somehow became a baby. And that baby started to vomit. I like to work this way often when it comes to subject matter. Allowing images to just pop up from my surroundings or as a reaction to what was there in the first place. In the end I believe a finished piece needs to be an enigma, it needs to make the viewer think, and possibly not have a resolved end point. Acting as a question, more so than an answer.

Stranger #1






This painting is part of a series I haven't fully delved into as much as I've wanted to yet. I start by painting a face from memory of either someone i've seen on the street, known in person, or seen in media be it advertisement, television, pop culture etc. I let multiple faces interject the original idea, and the figure acts and becomes a conglomeration of multiple personalities of what I feel to be the next step. In the end, the piece becomes a complete stranger from anything or anyone else I could of possibly interacted with.

Cecily

I'm in love, and always will be in love, with Cecily Brown. I'd love to go on a date with her if she wasn't married to an architect.

Jaguar Paw













I don't know how I feel about this painting, I did this in September/October 2010. It's about 7.5ft tall by 9ft wide. I took good documentation throughout the process though, and I always find it interesting to watch them grow. Oil on canvas.

Welcome


I've been really into George Bellows, Devourment, and Dying Fetus lately. George did the two paintings above. He mainly did work in the early 1900's. Oil on canvas.
