Works in Progress

Lost In Translation series: Ready January 2022, details to come.

To me, there is a special fascination to seeing an unfinished work of art. The way it offers a telling glimpse into an artist’s process and how it makes you wonder where it will end up.

Below are progress shots of what I’m working on for the LOST IN TRANSLATION series… It makes me a bit uncomfortable because during my process there are often awkward stages where it’s clear I’m still trying to figure it out and certain things just aren’t working.  Kind of like putting together IKEA furniture, but boy it’s a rush when you finally get it put together.

I’ll make update every few weeks or so. Check back every now then.

WORKING TITLE: Not sure yet…
SIZE: 46″ x 52″
COMMENTS: If you watch the animation of progress photos, you’ll see that I recently made a major shift. I hated to give up the wicker chair but it had to go, it wanted too much attention. Hover over the image then use the arrow to see the progress.
