Unreliable Narratives

The artist may be the author and storyteller, but interpretation is ultimately up to the viewer. The thoughts, feelings, reactions, or revelations that occur when we experience art as a viewer may not resemble anything the artist as the creator had in mind or intended to convey.

A narrative starts as only one side of a story and coming from one person is inherently unreliable; it’s the many interpretations by every viewer that expand the story and give it a richer, fuller life.

These portraits are not intended to be a straightforward representation of anyone, and indeed are not based on any specific people. For me they illustrate a singular moment, a passing glance, a cursory scan; there’s just enough there to set a story in motion.

 I hope you enjoy, or at least are intrigued by my work, and I hope you find something in these paintings that speaks to you.
