The strength of these images exists in the tension created between the figurative profile and the abstracted paint that fills those outlines. As is often the case, each individual that views the artwork sees a different image on the inside but is forced to see the abstractions as something else. It is this dynamic that gives these images their power. Blurring the lines between figuration and abstraction can be as liberating for the viewer as it is for the artist that makes them.
