My recent work investigates the use of multiple picture planes and precarious perspectives to create a sense of atmosphere within a painting. These paintings are influenced by a character I created called the “Necromancer”. Although not every painting features this character, my intent is to have these works all be of the same narrated universe. By using this as a playful vehicle, I want to explore how the relationship between perceived light, shapes and color can distort physical, and ideally, psychological space for both myself and the viewer. With use of repeated motifs and colors, I create a language between the paintings that the viewer can use to navigate this narrative in such a way that they are voyeurs onlooking the picture frame.
