SAINTS of CIRCUMSTANCE

"My Saints of Circumstance are glimpses of face-to-face encounters with friends and strangers transformed through the act of capturing their form. To create these portraits I first draw with pencils on translucent mulberry paper - chasing the resemblance that a photograph gives. Then through a process of spraying and brushing colors a familiar face emerges, an ecstatic moment, a brief attitude. I crush and distress the paper while continuing to paint and the resulting works reveal various personas materializing through intersections of drawing, painting and chance."
