I often ask myself what it means to embody a sense of others in a painting. What it means to capture their gaze with sensitivity to their feelings. And, what it means to directly encounter their emotions as an audience. My art is derived from both the visual presence of empathy, and a sense of depth in a field and the focus on subjects that both invite a guest and a host a set of feelings that I intend as a meeting between the two.
I think deeply on the influence of looking, finding, and the presence of emptiness in creating a sense of accompaniment. Inspiring new guests through the actors and their sense the setting in a place I want to cherish.
