Loss (or, Man with a Triangle Void)
oil on glass, 12x16"; tempered glass, wenge, aluminum; 2015

This work highlights the confusion associated with self-perception. The painted side is more approachable in a traditional sense, except for the inescapable voids in the face, so curiously placed across the mouth, eye, and ear. And this void (actually just the surface of the glass) has a represented affect on the flesh in the form of a shadow. When viewed from the other side, the glass serves as an obfuscation and necessary component to the translucent appearance of flesh. This work can be displayed with either side facing the viewer (see last image for the painted side).
