Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
These postcards are small working drawings similar to my larger work on canvas. I work from mediated images; art book photos of old master paintings by artists working in the seventeenth century; Velázquez and Rembrandt for example. I draw details from their sketches and paintings using charcoal then use oils combined with bright spray paint and punk-style graphics from my youth.
