Find Your People

This series of 10 abstract portraits is about challenging viewers to find their people, individual that they can relate to, whether in real life or art. Each painting starts as a number of single colour palette knife marks on the canvas. A conscious portrait is not sketched in the beginning, but, rather, reveals itself as the marks are being made. Each image is complete when there is still individual ambiguity and interpretation; people can see who they want to see. Georges Seurat used pointillism in a similar way: dots of colour combine to create shape and forms. And modern digital images offer something similar when increased in size, allowing one to see individual pixels.
