Acrylic Painting

While my subject matter varies greatly, covering nudes, wildlife and landscapes, all the work is unified by a stylized use of bold fractal-like shapes to create the images. Each shape in the painting is composed of a single color, together these flat color shapes create the depth, dimension and flow I strive to achieve. In my compositions I look to accentuate the movement and flow I see, sometimes it elevates the main image and sometimes it obscures but it always makes the image a little more interesting than reality.
