My paintings are derived from digitally dissected images. I apply oil paint to the surface in consecutive layers to transfer the abstracted reference information into iconic female forms. The accrued layers leave visible traces of the process and create a physical depth in the portrait. The organic properties of the oil paint permeate the rigid digital process.
