My portraits reflect upon the intimate relationship between subject and model. Pinocchio is about lying, the jewish New Yorker about memory and empathy, the others individual identity. I'm particularly motivated by the process inherent in portraiture which induces both self reflection and a form of combat between myself and the clay.
