Tiberius tears played at smiling lips (2010)

pigment, resin, oil, clay on 54"x54 canvas

Full Description

Most of these paintings are from a series where I explore using clay heads to correspond to the first ten Sophie Germaine prime numbers. The painting 'Feeling unstable... ' is the last one in the series and contains 89 clay heads. Repetition, patterns, the clay faces are all a means of seeking something out. Searching for a vocabulary, a complex business whose symbols are arcane, obscure, playful even. I paint to discover something inside of me that I don't know exists — a separate language, an honesty. I paint to shape what is me into colors and forms, to dig deeply into my own state of being human in hope that others will feel the same.
