Towards the end of 2017 I became determined to attach more personal meaning to my art. I resolved to share the real emotional issues that plague me through my paintings. So this work “Odyssey 2018” marks the beginning of that journey to explore the anguish and cruelty inflicted by parental alienation and narcissistic abuse. They are darkish themes and things are likely to get a little rough in the studio – but ultimately I start where I aim to finish. Looking up, looking forward. With optimism.
