Reinventing Portraits

I am fascinated by the ways in which glass, mirror, metal and epoxy catch and refract light, and play with our eyes. I work with unusual materials to create portraits that are simultaneously glamorous and mysterious.  In low light, my portraits seem illuminated from within.

My craft is really the manipulation of negative spaces. It is not the dots that define the face, but the empty spaces left between them. This reminds me of the nature of our universe: how the infinitely small can coalesce into matter, or at least the illusion of matter. 

This sort of pointillism and impressionism is echoed in my music, through the use of repetition and minimalism.

I love the dissonance and contradiction of working with jagged, dangerous, and cursed materials to evoke the beauty of the human face.
