A Still Life. This body of recent work consists of paintings that continue the artist's experiments in portraiture and landscapes. The show reflects a departure of subject matter from his previous studies of primates. The work is expressionistic, thoughtful and often captures tension in still moments.
A Still Life
This body of recent work consists of paintings that continue the artist's experiments in portraiture and landscapes. "A Still Life" reflects a departure of subject matter from his previous studies of primates. Inspired by maritime iconography, the subject matter consists of sea fishermen, adolescent boys at play in the ocean, steel fishing vessels and lighthouses. The work is expressionistic, thoughtful, and often captures tension in still moments.
