Solo exhibition @ Sarah Gormley Gallery, July 2021
My work is made by pulling vivid pictures from my head; Full blown war scenes, to a made up still life, a portrait made from weird objects and line work, or practicing a new pose for my character. I am always looking to create the next new idea for myself.
While I love painting, drawing is a crucial part of my process in which I can sink into my thoughts and "let my pen do the work". Often paintings are built upon ideas formulated in my sketchbook, or by succession of adding and taking away.
My power line up of inspirations goes as such: Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Basquiat, George Baselitz, Picasso, and Graffiti.
The use of "SOLE" originates from the graffiti name I chose in elementary school - Now an identity for my work. Used now as a reflection tool for myself to understand everyone has a uniqueness.
being the only one of the kind; unique; unsurpassed; matchless.
