It looks amazing, I will write my paper about your feelings on the idea behind your art work. Thanks for your insight and input, you stuff looks great. Since your are represented by a gallery I was wondering if I could maybe write an extensive paper for my course based on another piece of your art? We need to find art that has been previously displayed in two prominent locations/settings.

Story
Introduction

My paintings are about staging an alternate reality, the illusion of verisimilitude on the painted surface, filtered so that it expresses my unique vision. Though my paintings may appear photoreal my goal is not to reproduce or document faithfully what I see one hundred percent, but also to create the illusion of depth and sense of presence not found in photographs. I try to use objects as a vehicle to express myself, to tell a story, or hint at something beyond what is actually painted. Therefore I try to choose subjects that have meaning to me or are artifacts from my life. I choose colours and composition intuitively with the intent of infusing my paintings with mood and mystery. Throughout, I try to remain open to new ideas as the painting unfolds.
