Mixed Media on Canvas

My artwork is about abstracting the figure.  Using layers of acrylic paint, charcoal and pastel, the goal is to place the figure within an abstract narrative, instead of attention to the details of realism. The figures that are created may seem to appear and disappear on the canvas, evoking a mystery or a fleeting impression, allowing the viewer to use their imagination to fill in the context.
