`en pathos ` A Greek term that translates to ` in passion ` . The human figure is a timeless and classic subject that has always bestirred feelings of passion in the hearts of both artist and viewer. It can easily take a lifetime's artistic endeavors to master just a tiny aspect of the figure's potential. More important than the literal realm of the figure, there also lies a subjective realm, a place where my work is created and lives.....a place `between'. In trying to capture the essence of the human figure, each artistic medium offers its own unique visual interpretation, be it with paint, ink, charcoal, clay, metal or wood. My philosophy as a visual artist is to welcome risk and chance, and to nourish interest into passion.....for the true artist's work is most certainly created.....'en pathos'.
