My Abstract Figure Paintings

I have worked from the human figure consistently since college, creating a huge body of figure paintings and drawings.  My abstract figure paintings, drawings, and collages always begin with drawings from live models.  I start with media that are swift and sensual, and work quickly to capture the model's body, face, expression, or mood.  I may leave this spontaneous portrayal as the completed work of art, which may be more or less realistic, or I may work the drawing into a painting or collage, often playful, either a simple abstraction like the paintings above, or a complex composition energized with patterns.  Strong compositions and bold color are characteristic of my abstract painting, and how the figure interacts with the surroundings and the edges of the picture is usually a major feature.  My stylistic inspiration comes from powerful realists like Michelangelo, as well as from masters of color and sensuality like Gauguin, Klimt, Matisse, Degas, and Van Gogh.  Contemporary figure painting has branched off in many new directions, but it always adapts to the times and retains its universal and timeless appeal.
