Paintings in Gouache on Paper

These paintings explore the liminal and transitional, inviting contemplation on themes of awakening, death and transformation.  Shown mostly in profile, invented heads appear wrapped in stillness, as if attending a shift in awareness that has not yet happened but is about to occur.  

The heads in this series seem at once ancient and contemporary.  Symbolic of human consciousness, some of these heads seem to possess distinct personalities or missions - as compassionate emissaries, guides or figures from mythology.
