Before The Vague Face Clenches Into Light…

Melanocytes; Dry Pastels On Paper

… I have vague
Dreams now
Of intelligent flowers.
I cannot say
If their roots
Are in the ground
Or in the air …

Face On; Acrylics and Oil Pastels On Paper

Vague Portraits is a collection of self-directed abstract portraits; covering the middle ground between vibrant fragmentary bodies to strange abstract associations – some almost cartoonish.

Regardless of medium each loose portrait (mostly pastel, some time acrylic or marker) begins on paper and evolves there in a free-form manner. Each portrait is imaginary, so technically incorrect and distorted. Using fearless, uninhibited painterly strokes a face bursts from the canvas; spirited and wild in form and shape.
