Patterns plays a major role in my current body of work which is primarily centered around portraiture. I utilize geometric patterns to help push and emphasize the flat space as it contrasts with elements of realism. The convergence of infinite space and the figure highlight the realm of contemplation located between the conscious and the subconscious mind.
