Selected Works

In this series, I blend familiar and historical imagery allowing for misinterpretation to occur. The result is a new visual narrative, created from the image's inseparable pre-existing connotations.
These images are often misleading, yet they contain elements of their past and reflect our current condition.

My paintings subvert the traditional genre of portraiture by approaching the subject with the sentiment of an Iconoclast. Yet my intention is to “rebuild” the image rather than destroy it. I take advantage of the cyclical nature of history and its unfailing tendency to repeat itself.
