Older Studio Work
Much of my studio work over the years has centered around portraying places of refuge or comfort within urban environments, inside buildings, or more recently, inside the human body. I've gone from expansive and external spaces to more internal spaces with my Innerscapes series.
When I was a young boy, I'd spend hours alone building forts, climbing trees, and finding secluded spaces to play or just daydream. I wasn't trying to hide from anything or anyone, I just enjoyed solitude sometimes. It was an interesting realization for me when I finally saw the connection between my childhood alone time and my artwork as an adult. I realized that most of my studio work involved creating or finding secluded, intimate spaces in the midst of a turbulent world -- just like much of my childhood.
The first three works below were transitional pieces for me -- combining building spaces with some sense of the human body.
