The Head of enlightenment, Oil on Canvas, 34x36
This painting, The Head of Enlightenment, has influences by the Biblical tale of Jonah being swallowed by the whale in his disobedience to God. Although the painting references the story, it is truly a tale about society’s pressure to conform and the mechanized system of society. The small figure is resisting being swallowed by large “machine-like” head. The head is caught in its own web. The web resembles a wrathful ocean’s eye, which is swallowing the head itself.
The Face, Oil on Canvas, 34x36
The painting depicts a large mask like face with doorways and staircases on the right and left side of the picture plain. The staircases and doorways represent entry into a person's soul and character. The painting represents how you should not judge a personal by their physical appearances, but judge them based on their inner character and being.
