2009-07, is part of larger series based inspired by the the artist’s reflections on death. a large skull is centered on a black background. It is rendered frontally in a shimmering riot of colors, which gives it a psychedelic flavor. Despite its eerie qualities, its atypical, abstracted representation partially removes its deathly associations; the skull’s technicolor, viscous rendering dissolves its outline, which helps to conceal its true nature. However, its deep eye sockets create a vacuum that draws in its viewers, forcing them into a staring match that they cannot hope to win. This frontal depiction is a watery mirror for its audience, and a less than subtle reminder of the inevitability of mortality.

A word from The Artist

My works do not reference to anything reality-based values, they refer only themselves. I use flowing lines and deliberate, controlled strokes to construct a world of the id. Living is a form of euphoria; the moments leaving and returning to consciousness stir up a wave of forms, billowing with all of life’s power and intoxication.
