“My work entails visualizing urban scenes that impart a cinematic experience. An avid follower of current and past film directors, I often dream of compositions that evoke an alternate reality. I try to capture an emotional disparity and solitude that is often felt in an urban environment. Working in oils allows me to layer and build realism and richness to each painting. Using a traditional and contemporary approach, my technique involves wet on wet applications.”
