Artist's Statement:

FIGURATIVE MANNERIST

"A mannerist uses a type of drawing unique to himself. I choose to use the figure to explore the possibilities of mannerism.

In the art of drawing, you have drawing per se, rendering and draftsmanship which combine in different ways that are unique to each artist. As a mannerist I prefer draftsmanship.
