Artist’s Statement

Every face speaks a multitude.
In a portrait, each line, each colour, each shape discovers one moment of flickering energy, encompasses an ambiguity, fixes paint to open a question. A portrait seeks the question at its most intense, when it can no longer be avoided.
I am setting out to find the questions.
