The Icon Series: There are paintings made with oil on copper, oil and acrylic on canvas or watercolor and gouache on paper. Many of these pay homage to Michelangelo and are based on details of single figures from the Sistine Chapel ceiling. Other paintings are homages to a number of artists including: Piero della Franceso, Leonardo da Vinci, Kollwitz, Masaccio, Caravaggio, Pontormo, Bernini, as well as Picasso. The paintings vary from single art historical references to combinations of two or more parts from different works and possibly different artists. Please see my "Artist Statement" for more concerning the nature of these works.
