The Kiss

The Kiss

ABOUT: The kiss as a subject has long inspired artists, often with references to intimacy, passion, first love, long-lasting love, and so on and on. Here is the kiss of death. Is it an embrace of death, or rather an acceptance of all the stages and phases of our life, and what comes next? For me, the painting is a celebration.

Audition

Audition

ABOUT: Phones are ubiquitous, recording the moment to moment phases of our lives. The ability to photograph and video ourselves with such immediacy leads me to contemplate how we might record our own passing. Will me use our devices to audition for our place in heaven?

Purgatory

Purgatory

ABOUT: As the pandemic drags on, there are times when we feel we’re on hold, waiting, anticipating, in purgatory. Sophia and I were both masked for this session and this image, for me, speaks depths of how we were feeling. The painting can be interpreted on many levels.

Where Are You Going? Where Have You Been?

Where Are You Going? Where Have You Been?

ABOUT: Ellee is very active. She runs and rock climbs. It is evident in the strength of her body, and in the confident stride. The pose is about movement, transition, and passing through. The angel image with the mirror speaks to us about the ephemeral nature of life. The image is intended to bring us to contemplate this all too quickly passing life.
