His main area of interest is to experiment with figurative subject (s) by adding various foreign materials and by building complimentary artistic background sets to ultimately challenge the potentials of these subjects through the use of different mediums employed throughout each process. His work style is an offshoot of art “isms” known as expressionism, surrealism, cubism, pictorialism to name but a few. His work is greatly influenced by renowned artists such as Francis Bacon, photographers Bill Brandt and, film directors Stanley Kubrick are just a few to name.
Brief Artist Statement
My work focuses on the construction of a compilation of projected images derived from different sources used as primary projections. The aim is to challenge the limitations of various artistic mediums used as well as the subject to ultimately record and capture these projected image (s) onto an observable format. My most recent project entitled “Projections” explores an internal and external projection of the human body forms and its intricacies through capturing an infinite of images interlacing all together to eventually form a prime and focal image.
