Historical Context:
"My influences include Early American limners, the art of the Middle Ages, as well as religious icons. The faces in many of these portraits are partially obscured; this hide and seek refers to how revelation always comes to us incomplete in bits and pieces. In this way painting also becomes a form of inquiry into the hidden mysteries of life." -Rick Beerhorst
