Here is a piece I made about a year ago that I am currently reinventing. It is larger than my current work, about 40 by 30" which is an exciting change. It has a lavish quality about it which reminds me of Kehinde Wiley's paintings, posted below. The lace background has covered the creature here, a new experiment of mine. New messages seem to emerge with this cage/net/mask entwining the monster. We will see where this more active background takes me...
