These are photographs of actual paintings which I make by hand. There is no CGI or Photoshop. The ”Paintings” series was motivated by a turning-of-the-tables on painters who use found photography as their source material, those who find the need to re-render appropriated photography. So I set out to make a body of work that commented on this cliche of paintings of photographs.  Yet ultimately, as with all of my work, I aim for the work itself to not only have meaning, but also be luscious and compelling, vivid and emotional. I combine acrylic, tempera, oils, and water, usually on a glass painter’s palette. Then, to modulate the lighting, I employ both natural light from my studio skylights as well as studio strobes with soft boxes and hand cut stencils which then cast shapes or words visible in the paint's reflections.
