1879 Powell St. Vancouver
The painter’s subjects range from solitary and grotesque figures of lonelihood to scenes of austere rusticity. His portraits, while depicting sexual mania, outrageous grief, faltering masculinity and crumbling intellect are not contritional; rather, these are works of humor and pathos. There is, however, a manner of relief sought beyond the insular confines of these personalities. The alliance shared by bodies in a landscape promises, if not transmutation, a greatly diminished agony.
