I recently began carving and painting wood. The texture and roughly hewn surface, lends itself to the thickly layered method in which I'm used to working (oil on canvas, acrylic on paper). The result is a series of animated pieces that consist mostly of heads. Inspired by Daumier's sculptural heads, these pieces are absurd caricatures of desperate and whimsical creatures: ornamented with rich color and personality.
