Life’s complicated and how we interact with one another can be complicated too. I represent the figure in my paintings with all it’s complexity either in how it relates to another figure in the painting or how it relates to an under painting.

In my mind we and the objects with which we share our space exist on several planes. I enjoy layering these planes, removing and highlighting aspects of each plane in an attempt to create a story.
Perhaps my story might be different from a story you may conjure by looking at how I've arranged these planes and their negative and positive space. That's fine. The point is that the painting conjures imagination.

Don't Go, 48"x 60", digital projection and acrylic on canvas.

The male figure is at a crossroads as the female figure fades in and out of the picture. What's more important, the "stuff " in our lives or the relationships. The female figure is a digital projection which fades and returns at 10 second intervals.

Pushed, digital projection and acrylic on canvas
Final projection cropped. Better approach?

Pushed, 60"x 60", digital projection and acrylic on Canvas and wall

Experimenting with white section of the projection. Is that section too distracting?

Whale Watch, 30"x 124", acrylic on canvas

Still need some work on panel two figures need to disappear more into the water. Perhaps slight change of female figure palette.
