About the show, in the words of the artist:

Portraits are Forever Now.

Like many artists, I’ve made and looked at portraits all my life. Unlike most artists, however, I’ve also spent thousands of hours in intimate conversations with people from all walks of life, as until recently I worked as a mental health counselor. As a counselor I meditated on a fact of being in session after session, for eight years: there is something ineffable about a person’s physical appearance—something of their soul, I believe. Something that I can’t speak. I have been and still am powerfully moved to attempt to gather a connection to this ineffable something through drawing and painting. That visible, palpable presence of the person, that ineffable something, is completely bound up in its context. And yet we can see something of it across centuries if a portraitist was successful. Centuries.
