Collateral Play presents a body of paintings relaying my understanding of the universal concept of power. My use of the self-portrait is divided into several rudimentary studies celebrating the euphoric states of power brokering. The series is punctuated with visual accounts of external authority figures who display the absolute heights of jurisdiction, mirroring my pool of self-portraits. Largely an unfolding process of developments I see painting as a study of abstraction of the real, where every element should have a life of its own when ruthlessly singled out.
