In old museums, I typically adore the glorious female busts, the painted portraits created pre-photography. The work's story telling crafted by the artist and expressed through the subject.
The series ma ladies dans marker is a tribute to the luxuriously formative portraits from the drifting past, as well as a testament to the more recent past and coming future.
The Protagonist. The Quiet One
My Future Youth with Picasso's Ghost
She Colored and Colored and Colored Until She Longed for Black and White
The Tate Collection
She was stunning.
Her eyes possessing such sincere, love and vulnerability.
Bewitching was her beauty, confusing the shallow.
Her Reflection was Her Future
Deserved and Disturbed.
Confused In The Midst.
Les animaux mythical Series 1.0
Now that the shows over I can finally admit my vote. For 2013, my Oscar ballot for best picture went to Animal Odd Couples, a nature documentary that explores animal habits and relationships. In painting the series les animaux mythical, I strove to channel the nearly meta-physical notions expressed in the film.
The paintings are depictions of animals as characters within the myths of their own cultures. A tribute to the storytelling that could go on beyond the human experience. These animals live within the worlds of their animal cultures.
