Keji: 12/16" Acrylic on canvas.


Fetish: 8/10" Acrylic on canvas.

My own little protecting gargoyle that helps keep an eye on things.


Ever-After: 12/14" Acrylic on reclaimed canvas.

  An experiment into Gothica, as part of my ongoing efforts to dig deep into myself and rediscover some spark or ember of, the old passions I felt once; when musing on, and expressing in my own small way, the comedic tragedy I see whenever I muse upon our delicate presence in the Universe.


Soror Wormatiam

Soror Wormatiam: 8/10" Acrylic on canvas.

  Went a little dark with this one, returning to my gothic sensibilities in how I relate to this World and our general state of fleeting existence.  This falls under the purview of religion so far as I'm concerned; an area of human thought and practice that seeks to tackle and reconcile us with those fundamental questions as 'why are we here?' and 'What is the meaning of Life?' If indeed there is such a thing.



Stag-Moon: 18/24" Acrylic on canvas.

Damascus Road.

Damascus Road: 36/24" Acrylic on canvas.

  I chose to approach this painting a little differently, opting to use only a palette knife, as in other of my paintings of a mechanical nature.  I suppose my reasoning towards this stems from my own  awkwardness and general ignorance of all things mechanical.  My mental and emotional disassociation from the subject seemed to demand an approach that might remove any notion of control in execution.  Instead leaving me to, wield the palette knife with the same fumbling awkwardness that grips me whenever I direct my attention towards the mechanical.  In some small way, I hope that this same fumbling and halting approach will help familiarize myself  more with the subject-matter.  As I attempt to come to terms with the Machine and make my own kind of peace with it.
