In the Figurative Series, I take the iconic, voluptuous Aphrodite woman as my "everywoman,"
and use line and colour to open up a visual dialogue and experience. Behind every painting
there is a story which snapshots a moment in my experience. The focus is the figure: not the
background. So, there are no distractions. Time for inner contemplation and what ensues is
the connection inspired between the figure and the viewer.
Stylistically, in these works, I fuse traditional painting practices of colour and composition
with a bold, graphic style. It is a style which evolved out of my love for painting on silk and my
affinity for direct simplicity in style and statement.
In the V Series, I have embarked upon a project of 69 paintings. The project titled, "V" Series:
69 Paintings," is my personal mission as an artist to offer an alternative to blatantly crass
depictions of the female body. My intent is to tempt the senses and imagination of the viewer in
an artistically positive, playful and respectful manner.
