Oil and pumice on canvas
2001
(from the series Reverie)

Each painting in the Reverie series presents a single sleeping character. The paintings are an examination of stillness and reflection. Without the model's opposing gaze I am at liberty to observe without apology. They project a passionate nostalgia for absolute contentment that alternates from simple sensual enjoyment of rest in the full colour paintings to something approaching morbidity in the larger than life, grisaille (monochromatic) paintings.
