The Hour of the King

This is my latest series of paintings which I am currently presenting at the Gasoline RoomsThe Hour of the King is a story about a relationship between a little girl and her mentally degenerating grandmother who is getting lost in the world of her visions and paranoias. Loosely based on my childhood memories, it is a dark tale of emotional disintegration, seen through the eyes of a child who reaches out for the fantastical and the symbolic as a way to decipher an otherwise incomprehensible reality. The paintings are based on sketches from a 250+ image storyboard strip for a short graphic novel I am developing, and they will be part of the book.
