Figure Series

The figure has always played a major role in my work, and in this series I am moving away from replicating the anatomy of the figure as I had in past series, by breaking down the human body into its basic shape as if it were covered by cloth. This keeps the eye from focusing on the details of the anatomy and let's the viewer follow the sweeping gestural lines of the form. Using curves, bends and negative space to capture energy and a sense of motion to create visual tension and express movement in a still object, but also capturing a moment, a gesture, a quiet interaction between people or an individual and their thoughts. Communication is an important aspect of our existence, and has always been a main source of my inspiration, whether it be with oneself or between others.
