Painting > Figurative Works

As humans we naturally look for the recognizable in art. A face, a flower, a glass, vase, plate, landscape, etc. Some viewers are uncomfortable looking at art in which the recognizable is not identifiable. In my process of painting, that recognizable image is sometimes lost. This is a collection of work in which that original image remains or new recognizable images or figures emerge at the conclusion of the piece.
