The Cup Series
I figured it out... So, these are three paintings out of my latest series. I start off by painting a still life, (this one consisting of one cup per painting) then I create a fractured urban looking environment over the top of that still life. This creates a skewed sense of scale, not allowing the viewer to establish his/herself within a recognizable area. The shapes that are subsequently created in these compositions both recede and pop out at the viewer depending on how you look at it. I find these paintings to be quite playful, and entertaining.
