Recent Projects and Works

Presenting a series of paintings and sculptures. A large and sumptuous wall drawing “of an abstract painting”, executed in ink and brush, gazes upon several smaller works. The paintings, executed in encaustic or gouache on panel depict similar sculptures and paintings. The relief sculptures beautifully mock the paintings for their two-dimensionality.
