Empathy Vehicles (2017-pr.)



These paintings attempt to manifest the spirit of a personality which may be inhabited, interpreted, and defined independently by each viewer.

After a few years of working primarily on the Friendships series, I thought I'd challenge the process by trying to incorporate two characters into a single figure- a friendship of one. When the chakras of the two figures started lining up, I saw a novel approach to capturing a character without the benefit of most distinguishing features. -June, 2018
