We all love familiarity, we Iike to visit the same cafe’s, chillin with the usual crowd. Faces are the first thing we recognize as children and look for they give the security we desire from a young age. We love recognizing people faces. This is why I love to paint abstract heads I feel this is my way of seeing the world I feel there is a uniqueness and thats what gives my work authenticity!
Starting on a new piece is super exciting for me. Although I may have a preconceived notion of creating something unique and exciting that will intrigue myself and the viewer, ultimately the process creates its own flow, and encapsulates, solidifies or impregnates itself into the medium whether it’s painting or sculpture.
