He uses portraits of humans and animals to explore the variety and intensity of human emotion. Observers are engaged by the beautiful realistic details, but eventually are involved in an intense relationship, whether beauty, rage, melancholy, malevolence or goodness, which draws them into the domain and creativity of the artist’s mind.
