New Generation Gallery 2015

My objective is to create an intense sense of presence in the depicted figure within each painting. I work large-scale so that the figure in the painting can be experienced as another presence in the room. I work from personal photographs that relate to my heritage. I aim to create a strange nostalgic intermediate space by populating the display room with these figures.
