Paintings that are both true images and false idols.


Tethered to the traditions of the Northern Renaissance, where unbelievable realism was created in oil paint and used to bind the heavenly with the earthly in glorious high definition; my current paintings aim to create beguiling images of subtle detail that question our relationship with reality in the post internet age.
