Other Figures

This exhibit includes abstract human
figure paintings, drawings, and collages,
and other unique expressions of the figure.
Most play with ambiguous dimensions
and overlaid realities, which merge
with the figures.  Other figures are
fragmented and reassembled, vibrating
playfully against their own previous
forms. Some use text to tell stories.

Also included are human figure
paintings based on Buddhist and Hindu
stone relief figures at Borobudur and
Prambanan temples in Indonesia,
and large paintings of Japanese sumo
wrestlers.

The following series
of ten (six shown)
very large paintings
is based on sumo
wrestler images
that I collected in
Japan.  They are
intended to hang,
East Asian-style,
from rods, with fabric
edging.  I imagine
them decorating a
sumo wrestling arena
somewhere in Japan.

The following series
of paintings is based
on photographs I took
of stone reliefs at
Borobudur and
Prambanan,
Buddhist and Hindu
temples in Java.
They are painted on
very rough paper
that creates a
startlingly realistic
likeness of stone.

The next pictures are
abstracts derived from
single or multiple
poses. I often did these
figure studies when I
found the musculature
or interior forms of the
figure more interesting
or fun than the overall
pose or expression of
the model.
