"People will do anything no matter how absurd, to avoid facing their own souls." - Carl Jung

My recent work explores and exposes the absurdities of the human condition. The paintings are presented like a play with each character or situation secretly or publicly acting out different states of mind. Each represent states of awareness, discomfort, awkwardness, forgiveness, sadness, loneliness, or turmoil based on known personal or universal personas.
