Allegory & Figurative

My figurative and allegorical paintings stay inline with my abstracts. This series is highly inspired by the Baroque period, painters like Rembrandt have created a sense of light and darkness, an interpretation of life through their eyes. I’ve turned this concept inside out and backwards to be able to create dimensions, depth and tension. By still using layers, I develop something outer worldly. I try to articulate the composition through my eyes with the layers, when something starts to make sense and when the image starts to appear, I add a layer to create emotion. You get a reaction when the painting is close to you, when it seems to be jumping off the canvas. Even with all this chaos it still gives a sense of calm, because when you get up close you realize in between the architecture and the geometry, the figures are dancing.
