Internal Struggle

In this pencil portrait I wanted to express the complexity of being one person but being composed of much more . We are all in movement and what makes us who we are is complex, beautiful, and miraculous in my eyes.

As a self-taught photorealism artist from Uxbridge Ontario, formally educated in the discipline of Science, I am often asked how I balance between these seemingly divergent fields of interest. Yet, the more I learn, the more I discover the difficulty arises only in trying to separate the two. In my scientific studies I learned that ‘form’ goes hand-in-hand with ‘function’. I am artistically fascinated with ‘the form’, and to how to study it visually, and scientifically fascinated by how and why ‘the form’ functions.

In this pencil portrait I want to capture something different . In my portrait drawings I seek to capture the individual , and bring as much dimension and life into that moment as possible, I wanted to push that dynamic and dimensional reality further, and quite literally express complexity of being one person but being composed of much more . We are all in movement and what makes us who we are is complex, beautiful, and miraculous in my eyes .
