Juxtaposition, Portraits & Puns presents a sampling from two concurrent projects

Discards & Discovery: A series of oil paintings in progress inspired by found objects, paintings where seemingly unrelated objects are paired together to emphasize an unexpected commonality or imply an underlying meaning.

Ink & Oil: A series of portraits that explore people of all ages and walks of life that have chosen tattoos as their form of self-expression. These portraits seek to capture a gesture and mood that provide additional insights into the subject’s personality beyond their art. Simply put, canvases of people who are themselves canvases.

Both projects challenge the viewer to look beyond the surface — whether considering everyday objects or the people they meet.
