The Aviary
Oil on Canvas
40″ x 30″ / 100 x 76 c

This is undoubtedly the most complex of my work. Painted on French polyester canvas stretched over a mahogany panel, it measures 40 x 30 inches. It is a self portrait of my consciousness, where my face fits perfectly within the shape of a crystal, where my neck is the trunk of a tree, my hair its foliage and my face the inside of a room. These superimposed layers required much sketching and five to six months of work, where the brushwork aims to be invisible. I painted what I see and feel.
