On Allegory: In the allegorical works, I attempt to make some comment on the human condition. The content of the paintings probe the ideas of character, identity, virtue, temptation and seduction. The scenes depict an impregnated moment frozen in time, a threshold, when the grossly sensual is confronted by the potentially disasterous. The sensuality of the figure entices, but is juxtaposed with symbols that represent danger or threat or an explosive change where nothing will ever be the same again. They ask, does one pass through such a threshold or turn away, and what are the consequences?
