    Description

    Throughout time, there has been individuality. Throughout time, there have been individuals that stand out among the crowd for their ideas, for their actions, for their achievements… Yet, over time, the memorized image of these individuals begins to fade. My abstracted portrait series, entitled, “Fading Identities” is a homage to these individuals and reminds people that the general characteristics of a person is all you need to remember their identity and what they stood for. From one angle it might look like they are a faded mess. While gazing at the subject from different angles, they look clear as day, yet, they are still the same un-changing individual. This is the basis of memories, and that is what this series is an homage to that.

    beautiful

    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.

    Well, one must read the description with this painting. The artist projects such an enthusiastic spirit and I am immediately caught up! This painting surely conveys the fantastical, a place inspired by dreams of other realms -- yet within this world, shrouded in the lore of history and days gone by.

    I wish there was more socially motivated art such as this one about beach erosion; the concept is well symbolized with falling angles and elements. There is color (life) above but a cold bareness below.

    Very colorful meeting of shapes conveys a happy feeling. Looks like a gathering of boats -- as if they are all talking.
