Recently, I?ve been working with various distinct styles, moving from the organic to the synthetic or mechanical in my interpretations. Here, I present two distinct series: one involing abstracted landscapes or abstracted figuratives. The other uses a mixture of synthetic and organic imagery. In both lines, I strive primarily to achieve an emotional impact using color, texture and composition. I hope you enjoy them.
