Figures ebb and flow in the whimsy of life. Coming, going, losing, winning , laughing, crying….imperfect and human creatures. Each is a mixed media composition using acrylic, ink, paper, gel, charcoal and each is created using sticks, brushes, fingers and hands. Just about anything goes – it’s a kinetic process – no rules here.
‘Insiders’ are slightly ethereal figures that seem to have a story to tell. I am never quite sure what the story is as I work on the painting it but by the time it is finished I have a good idea. The Insiders are fun because they mean different things to different people. There is an inherent bit of mystery as there always is with people….just when you think you know someone you can be completely surprised.
