Entwined
What do you see? Does the double portrait symbolize a twin or inner self?  This painting is a metaphor for the proverbial mask we all wear when interacting with the world.  

 

The Decision 

 


  • 21.5" x 20"
  • Oil on Panel
  • Unframed

This painting is inspired by my oil painted animations. These animations are separate images played in a sequence that create a movie.  With my latest work, the images are superimposed and collaged digitally. The sequence is effectively flattened and layered in one composition. I want the viewer to see multiple scenes or poses in one composition. The underlying message is that we are a sequence of experiences and a layer of knowledge and we (our mind) chooses how our experience and knowledge defines us. I use painting to describe this by choosing what part of the body to reveal and what to conceal.
