“Simply put, my work is the result of a shifting and evolving dialogue between my love of paint and my fascination with portraiture—a conversation between realism, abstraction, faces and identity. I am interested in how a shift in color or a few distinct brush marks can change the content of a portrait. I enjoy looking at the smallest details of the face and finding interesting ways to make it my own. Large pores, dark circles under the eyes, and the the complexity of skin color within shadows are all exciting features open to interpretation. I am especially intrigued by ears that appear transparent and luminous due to a strong light source behind them. I want to paint skin that I can get lost in.”—David Slone
