These paintings, developed largely from theatrical imagery, evoke a sense of mystery and intrigue displayed through the areas of light and dark. A garment or costume draped on a chair or left hanging on a hook becomes something mysterious or even sinister in a shadowed empty room. Although these paintings are personal to me, they are open to the viewer's own interpretation.
