Character Series

madame-x-posing02

    

The non-digital, but nevertheless "interactive process" of creating the  character paintings starts with a collaboration with the model selecting a subject from, history, literature, or mythology. Using loosely interpreted & improvised costuming, the paintings are double portraits.  Capturing the live actor/individual is parallel in importance to revealing the subject of the enactment.

This series is usually painted in acrylic on 42 x 30 mylar, a synthetic, slightly transparent graphic arts medium.
