The theme for the exhibit is based on our work in portraiture, examining the individual points of view of two artists.  For my own selections, my “portraits” convey emotion.  They’re not meant to be a technical likeness of a particular person.  Whether beginning with a model or photograph of a model, I then distort and exaggerate the pose or expression to suggest controlled chaos.  I imagine the individual in these paintings as reacting to money or job-related issues, loneliness, semi-stable environments, or familial concerns.  Filled with ambiguity, the paintings are meant to invite the viewer to make a personal interpretation.
