East end(Beaches), Toronto area artist. OCAD graduate who’s been a full time working artists since 2017. Focusing my artistic adventures on the Serialist medium I created during my thesis year of university. My Serialist medium allows me to combine all my interests into one process. History, research, humour, storytelling and artistic attention to detail.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

After years of artistic exploration I, finally, found my voice/visual language in my Serialist method.
Constructing a primary image entirely out of cut & pasted secondary images produces a visually complex visual narrative through these images contextually juxtaposed meaning.
Example: A serialist Donald Trump portrait constructed out of images of Pinocchio. Becomes: Chump Guevara, aka: The Liar in Chief.
With every new serialist painting, I’m constantly trying to do more research, capture more details(painting with paper), and explore this visual storytelling true boundaries. So far, it seems... limitless. #artlife

This Serialist painting is of Picasso,’ black & white, modern art mural masterpiece. It is the largest painting I have done, to date, and took me almost eight months to complete. My serialist rendition is half the size of Pablo,’ in colour, and constructed entirely out of the many, war crimes/criminals, human atrocities and critical cultural events committed since the original 1937 Guernica bombing. This horrific act by the German Luftwaffe during the Spanish civil as well as his painting would live on in infamy. Done as a means to both inform and warm the public of this tragic event and the awful trajectory it places humans on. This mural was meant as a warning sign to humanity to head Picasso’s warning and NOT to continue down this awful path of indiscriminate death and destruction. Sadly we did NOT head his warning and over the years humanity has only become more capable of cruelty on a truly global scale.

This serialist painting, another in the Artist’s Masterpiece Series focuses again on Picasso(and his women). This cubist masterpiece was painted in one afternoon and depicts Pablos(50) lover(22), Marie Therese-Walter. The overly sexualized, exaggerated proportions, and simplified colour scheme are what make it one of his best paintings of this exploratory period for Picasso. In my Serialist rendition of this masterpiece I have tried to convey the history, narrative, and myth surrounding this artist and artwork.

This Serialist painting is of MC Escher, 1921, woodcut, the Scapegoat. Done early in his career this print maybe a more simplified composition then we’re used to seeing from Escher however, it still retains his compositional balance, literally balancing on the centre point, while also his flair for visual tricks and play with 3D forms within a flat space. This Serialist painting is constructed out of historical, religious, and cultural icons both ‘good & bad.’
