Abstracted Figure

The inspiration to create these pieces was the idea of expressing movement in a still object, but also capturing a moment, a gesture, or a quiet interaction between an individual and their thoughts.

 

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 torso, and breaking down the human form into it's basic shape represented as a robed figure. 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 the energy and sense of motion to create visual tension.
