Artist’s statement

In Faces in the dark I explore the darker side of human nature. Much of Faces in the dark is reflective of what I have witnessed in myself and others through personal experience of the emotional hurdles that are thrown our way. I wanted to evoke a variety of moods and feelings that can be related to, such as anger, depression and fear. Capturing these emotions through the dramatic use of light and dark that illuminate the face was an important process of the paintings.
