"monica (gazes)" spawns from my "my space" continual series. While the piece has been about 10 paintings over past 3 years, it came into final fruition from an rigorous additive and reductive process. Subsequently, the rugged surface gives the viewer a pleasing physical texture; the graphite-drawn portrait of LA model/actress, Monica Ford provides a relatedness to a human condition and/or inherent experience.
I see myself and many others carrying around a longing for something bigger. I see its about connecting and knowing. As there all glimpses of mirroring experiences, much of the experience settles into a beautiful sorrow and pensiveness to mark the time.
