DECAYER Romancing the Juxtaposition of the Alluring and the Ominous.
The Decayer Series explores ideas of guise, secret and fate. In each painting, the subject is transformed by an alteration to its body or shares the picture plane with objects of implied narratives. Layered symbols begin to reveal new truths. A Decayer is something that consumes the other; through the parasitic destruction of one, another emerges. The viewer is enticed to decipher meaning through the lens of his or her own history.
