Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
When painting people I try to handle the image and lines very tenderly. One of the works is a small family portrait from boys visiting their father in prison. Although a sad moment it is still very tender and all too common. I think these moments can be handled in a way that still makes them feel beautiful and touching without feeling political. The other painting is self portrait from a photo of myself right before my first solo show. It felt like a version of myself that I needed to remember and etch onto canvas.
