Big Kisses

Pushing at the boundaries of realism through the hyper-articulation of surface detail and an intensified saturation of color results in a series of ecstatic slippages where abstraction finds form through these seemingly mundane subjects. The specificity of surface detail and saturation of color in this work reinforce the easy gratification of life’s simplest joys, yet the mirrored surfaces with thier fractured color and sharp reflections escape any comforting stability.
