The Debut Collection
A particularly large painting of my winter boots on a chair.
An exploration of one’s imagination when scared.
Have you ever been walking up stairs from the darkness and worried about something coming up behind you? This is a manifestation of that fear.
Based off of a collage of images, this painting is an exploration of color and expression. The flowers are monotone and barely distinguishable, while the eyes are detailed and staring right at you.
A quick expressive painting of a female nude model surrounded with muted patterns cloths, and shadows.
Another process painting, this too has a questionable narrative. What I saw when completing it was a giant laying on a hill, among a civilization of much smaller people, but others have told me different interpretation.
A painting to explore how intense color changes our perception. This was originally just a photo of a stream that flows by my house. When the saturation is doubled, then quadrupled, and so on, it becomes nearly unrecognizable.
A process painting that was developed from random lines and colors. It eventually turned into this woman bursting through the leaves in a jungle. Her narrative is up for discussion; her clothes suggests she is lost here but her expression suggests she is completely confident here.
A painting of a nude model with stark and dramatic lighting.
It was meant to give off the energy he put off, which I found suspicious and slightly intimidating.
A somewhat quick sketch of a nude model posing against a stool.
A quick, small painting study that emphasizes shadow with cool tones and highlights with warm tones.
