The Transfigurations paintings are a way for me to pay homage to the creative genius of my artistic forebearers through my own creative capacity. In our contemporary American culture, individuals are revered as idols for having contributed nothing more than inane sensationalism. It is important that we honor those individuals whose creative contributions have had a meaningful and lasting affect on the aesthetic and cultural dialogue of our society. Individuals whose imaginations and keen observations have made us look at ourselves, and the world we inhabit, differently. In attaching my creative talents to the images of these individuals, I have discovered an inventive method of calling attention to the specific individuals rather than the artistic productivity they are most commonly known for.
