Eden Among Us, Gouache on Paper , 15x22

These paintings are about looking at "the figure" and painting it--the context and the process.

It is such a strange context, and yet familiar in the artist's world, in which a naked person finds himself casually keeping company with a very busy clothed one. The nude figure session forms a unique culture: one of looking and being looked at, intimacy and distance, a group and yet individual investigation of the ways we are human. I find this sort of figure painting an interesting microcosm (or stand-
in) for being a human observer in the world. One is engaged in focused looking, one changes the situation by being there looking, and yet there is something interesting to be seen.

The process of hurrying to record this, in paint, makes for the immediate look of these pieces. It's my antidote for reality-deficit-disorder brought on by too much media.
