Acrylics on canvas 30 x 40, 2011
Three eyes of an alien figure stare out upon us from an abstract habitat. This mysterious entity, encased within a vivid green armor, seems to resemble elements of fish and bird. Viewers are treated to an x-ray of the creature's internal organs, which appear more like pieces of an alien city landscape. Drawn together through mystery and mythology, this being symbolizes a change in social acceptance and an embracing of the unknown. The Changeling is a social mascot, creating its own culture of constant change. The Changeling defies societal labels, offering up a commentary of self-reliance and non-conformity. This portrait is one of identity and self discovery.
