It has been a while since my last blog, but in my defense I have been busy getting married and playing catch up from my brief honeymoon. These are sketches from my latest series of work. These are sketches for current and future paintings that revolve around an astronaut motif. The astronaut serves as my dopple-ganger within this self portrait/ narrative series. I am heavily influenced by Stanley Kubrick's "2001 space Odyssey," particularly the later quarter of the film. I am setting this "Kubrickian" dialogue within fictitious room or series of rooms. I have two series of self portraits evolving in my studio, the astronaut series, and my fractal/ collage like series of paintings. Other than the depiction of technology it is unsure at this point where these two series will coexist. I hope to write more in the future about this series as developments occur.
