Original painting in oil on board.

The figures themselves seem almost contemplative, lost and alone. Their gaze reaches out with their frames grasping onlookers with detailed eyes. The painterly masks remain expressive and envelop each face, creating disturbing, dramatic depths in which the viewer themselves are left to contemplate. Stirring emotional responses, the works visceral enigmatic and destructive form disrupt traditional concepts of identity to create catharsis for the moral and social burdens of the everyday.
