Painted narratives by an identical twin with secret languages


FRom The Artist

To captivate the viewer at first glance in a way that compels them to step closer and read the dialogue between the subject & environment, backstory & descriptive details. To lose themselves in a gripping account composed of symbols, code, maybe hidden text. To be a page-turner they can’t put down. This is the most my paintings can ask for. Whether portrait, abstract, or a bowl of figs, each one contains a narrative inspired by my poems, novel passages, dreams, or travel journals.

Pie should not aspire to cake, nor paintings, photographs.

Paintings have a voice. Sometimes it screams. Sometimes, whispers. But always spoken in symbols.”
