In this collection of work, with its voyeuristic undertones and narrative feel, a glimpse is offered into the private moments of the lives of the characters that populate the paintings. There are however two distinctly different ways of observing the human condition: in roughly half of the works, the context is detailed and dense, the characters specific and charged with emotion. The scenes portrayed may be quiet moments, like a pause before some action is taken, but, the complexity of the settings hint at the quandary of each situation at hand. In the blurred images of the other half of the collection, there is a notable shift: from the personal to the incidental. The context becomes vague and the characters anonymous. The focus moves from inward to outward, away from emotion and towards mere motion.
