When I started this series, I rounded up a bunch of old paintings and collages. I cut up the collages and reconfigured them on top of the old canvases. Once the glue is dry, I build up layers of different mediums to create a more uniform painting surface. Then, with acrylic paints, I add washes and very Expressionistic brushwork. After the space has been fleshed out, I figure out where I want to place my "figure". Depending on the composition, the "figure" can take on several different forms and isn't altogether humanoid. Finally, after I've pulled a character from the silhouette, I paint a face, collage it on the painting and add embellishments and details depending on the personality of the character. I used to be really inspired by Aboriginal artwork and the dot-work sometimes emerges in my paintings.
