The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
To get as direct as I can, I improvise without the aid of preliminary drawings and without the aid of a mirror. The results encompass many of my contradictions: a combination of grace and awkwardness, of realism and distortion, of narcissism and shyness. The paintings also wrestle between being upfront and being filtered through art history, between being realistic and being abstract.
