Figurative Paintings 1

These figurative paintings consist of multiple canvases, usually three canvases. They are large shaped constructed pieces that hang from the wall onto the floor.  These paintings are an attempt to move from the confines of the square and rectangle of traditional painting into an area occupied by the viewer.   

"Shit! Something Bit Me"

Oil On Canvas

10' X 6'

 

 

I was immediately drawn to this pose's vitality, twisting and turning, so I incorporated it into a natural setting.

 

 

"The Curse"

Oil On Canvas

10' X 6'

 

I wanted to merge the decorative element with the figurative element to tell the story.

 

 

"Chaos"

Oil on Canvas

10' X 5'

This painting went through different transformations.  I worked on it for two years, never feeling comfortable until now.  It is about internal and external chaos.  

 

"Sorry"

Oil On Canvas

10' X 6'

 

Merging of figurative with decorative pattern elements.

 

"Waiting to Self-Destruct"

Oil On Canvas

9' X 5'

 

I intended to use "3's" in this artwork. Three canvases and three elements (the sky, wall, and grass) make up the central panel. Moreover, the floor, table, and cup make up the two side panels.

 

"Searching"

Oil On Canvas

10' X 6'

 

 

 “Searching" is about searching for the "self". Seeing something new or different about who we are.

 

 

 

"Tattooed"

Oil On Canvas

7' X 6'

I wanted to merge my concepts of still life with figurative painting. Rather than using standard still-life images for the tabletop, I choose beer bottles as the primary focal point.

"Nightmare"

Oil On Canvas

10' X 6'

 

 

The painting “Nightmare" aims to display imagery from the unconscious mind and the dangers that come alive in those dreams.

 

 

"Hypocrisy"

Oil On Canvas

9' X 5'

 

 

 

There is a certain element of hypocrisy in every religion's doctrine. Something I felt compelled to paint to convey lessons I acquired early in life.

 

 

"Please Don't Label Me"

Oil On Canvas

10' X 6'

 

 

We all label people so I wanted to address the issue. This is just one of five paintings based on this theme.

 

"Please Don't Label Me"

Oil On Canvas

10' X 6'

We all label people so I wanted to address the issue. This is just one of five paintings based on this theme.

 

 

"Escape the Box"

Oil On Canvas

10' X 6'

 

 

Another of the escape series.

 

 

 

 

"Witches Dance"

Oil On Canvas

10' X 6'

 

 

I wanted to include a dark, mysterious, and symbol-filled backdrop because I thought this an interesting pose.
