“Cloaked” is essentially the next- generation in the “Divide Series”.  Much like the original “Divide Series”, there is a barrier-a separation between the individual and the world.  In this new series, the divide takes the form of a headpiece.  Its connotations may or may not be religious,  from a time long past, or a time yet to come.

9″x 12″ Oil on Canvas

The surface of each painting is both textured and glossy, much like the feel of old Flemish portraits.  Sorry I’m unable to show you here, but I’m sure you get the idea.

  1. It’s amazing to me how these cloaked pieces somehow highlight emotional turmoil to me – maybe that’s baggage I bring to it – but I don’t think so; it’s as if the cloak holds the emotion in and keeps it swirling around them instead of letting it out, the surrounding dark space bringing this out even more. It’s haunting and palpable. Great work.

    1. You know, I feel the same. These paintings go through many layers, drying for days and more layers. The painting changes, but it has a hold on my as well. It’s thrilling to hear that it’s not just me:) Thanks ever so much, James.

  2. All those amazing paintings give insights into the individuals’ response to the callous,unfriendly world…I can feel the anxious ideas that arise from separation and the barriers…You’ve captured the essence of the scars in the human soul.So deep and sublime.
