These series of self-portraits were done in a moment where i was compelled to use the energy of my emotional state to good creative use. They always say better out than in and being human means that sometimes I have to deal with rough waters in my inner being.

Uncomfortable yes but it always makes for great art,

liberated art and honest art.

Gloss paint has an enviable quality of being both free and distinct as it is placed on the paper.

Rough and chaotic but always it settles in a quiet but powerful repose.

It is one of the few art mediums I know that allows for this wonderful contrast.

Even the smell is invigorating and yet repelling at the same time. A good representation of the mindset of Ego versus egoless (The Universe).

Is it the black the I am drawing with or is The Universe drawing with negative (white) space.

From nothing comes something (emotion) and this process was an attempt to capture that experience.
