The homeless series of paintings was my way of addressing the bleak situation of being homeless. The isolation and helplessness that someone who is homeless must be feeling is unfathomable. I chose to paint in monochromatic tones as it helped to convey what I was feeling when dealing with someone who was homeless. How can I help without insulting them further and was I helping or was it my own feeling of helplessness that was holding me back. I can’t imagine that someone would be homeless by choice but what do I know, I’m only guessing.
