About

Artist Statement: "Kinetic Stillness" is a piece about tension. The motion of reaching back while bending the head forward, the dichotomy between a stationary figure with the amount of movement seen in the figure's back, all add to the sense of tension. In my work I want the viewer to feel as if they are in the same space that the subject matter occupies. I do this by painting the subject close to the edges of the picture plane, so I am very conscious that the figure's fingers rest on the very edge of the composition. This piece, like all my recent figurative work borders between genres and blends between realism, impressionism, and modern
