This body of work contains some older works and some newer ones. The title of this show: Whale Calling and the Purpose of Rabbits describes elements of my journey and the symbolic purpose that certain things have on my own life and spirit. I gravitate to painting and sculpting the human figure in many different contexts. My style is mostly expressive so my imagery is highly emotional, colourful and exaggerated. I express myself in a highly subjective manner and try to capture my perception of life from that unique perspective. I paint and sculpt quite fast and try to capture the raw energy of my subject matter. I look at art making as a visual map of my journey in life and I have been able to capture the full spectrum from extremely dark to extremely hopeful. More info here.
