Faces - we see ourselves in each other?

For the last two years I have been exploring my series Faces of the System. If you ever wondered what inspires my work, please read my artist statement here. Over time the faces have transformed, changed and shaped in ways I could not have imagined. Inspired by the things and the people around me, my pieces keep carrying on the conversation of how we express ourselves. 

What if I added more than one face in a piece? Would they tell a different story, would the mirror each other, share a same experience or be two entirely separate entities?

Work in progress.....

Work in progress.....

These are questions that I am sure they paintings will come to answer as I explore and create. Here are some new pieces that are beginning this process. Stay tuned for more by signing up to my Art Lovers List and seeing the work as it is created.

When I first started... looking back

A few years ago I started to feel like I was on to something in my new style by breaking free from what I called "cut and paste" art into letting things come from the inside (so not from photos). 

I did a little video with a help of my friend and fellow artist Alex Usquiano Here is a little look back to a few years ago when I started experimenting with abstract concepts and lines in my work. Perhaps it is time for a new video :)
