My paintings have recently consisted of a figure that is imposed onto an abstracted architectural composition. Compositions are created by combining multiple perspectives and view points within a painting.
There seems to be an emotional relationship between these spaces and the figure. The viewer may begin to fill in this open narrative of a figure in an architectural space.
