The subject matter of my work continues to explore the first hand experience of visual perception. Although I have changed mediums from charcoal to acrylics, the focus is the same: neither pure representation nor pure abstraction. One aspect of perception that’s key to making things seem real or familiar is depth. While we know that pictorial depth is an illusion, it is ironically, a big part of what makes an image appear to show something that really exists. Whereas abstract pictures deliberately lacking in depth cause us to reach more readily for interpretation.
