Falynn 4, 2022 wall art wire sculpture
In my wire work I strive for Amplification through Simplification, as described by the comic theorist Scott McCloud - the concept that through distilling a portrait down to its essential characteristics, I can draw out something that’s truly them.
Drawing from mid century modern and the feeling of Matisse and Spansberg, I combine aesthetic investigation with the feeling and flow of Barry McGee and Parra. Modern and contemporary art, street art, manga, comics, and more influence my practice.
