Metopes & Friezes

Inspired by classical greek metopes and friezes, this collection of oil paintings is my most ambitious body of work.  It is both an ode to history and a contemporary allegory. All of these paintings are based on real historical artifacts. I took artistic license in composition and color, amputating limbs, turning rust into blood, and exaggerating the surface textures with brushwork to create a tromp l'oeil illusion of stone ravaged by time and a symbol of the consequences of glorifying violence.
