New Work

2019 Avatars - figurative work

 

I create models in a three dimensional modeling software like Cinema 4D or DAZ Studio and cover these models with painted and manipulated photographic textures like skin or textiles that wrap around them like a map on a globe. Each model has an invisible skeleton that allows me to pose and position the figure in its three dimensional environment much like you would do it with a lay figure. Digital lights and cameras are added with shadows and reflections simulating that of a real world. Mostly I invent scenes based on classical themes but also sometimes relate directly to paintings from art history.
