Gazing Into Eternity series

This series started in the Spring of 2021 revisits the relationship between the female archetype and nature, as started in the human nature series of drawings.

The Mechanical Paradise continued…

After the initial series of "The Mechanical Paradise", I continued this theme with new paintings "Andromeda" and "Terpischore". These paintings use a different design and layout, full figures integrated with the clockwork AI, within an interior cut off from the natural world that lies beyond.

The Mechanical Paradise

I initiated a new series of oil paintings, just as the London lockdown started in spring of 2020. "The Mechanical Paradise" uses techniques derived from the old masters to create these surreal faces, combining heads with elaborate clockwork mechanisms and AI.
