The Stateshifter series strive to express the complexity of internal mood shifting, both from the perspective of the individual and the observer. How one's mood affects his or her facial expression may not always be adequately articulated, as context may affect how we either react to or deny an emotion at any given moment. These paintings inspire contemplative reflection of the elegantly intricate workings of a face, mind, heart, and soul.
