Symbolic symbols

This series re-interprets symbols from everyday life, while adding a spiritual depth to familiar shapes.

Each painting begins with a coat of gradient sky done in spray-paint. The symbol is created from an original stencil, and the gold touches are a combination of metallic paint and gold leaf. In some cases, the sides of the paintings are neon, radiating a colored glow to add new dimensions as the painting hangs upon the wall.
