Portfolio > Magical Realism: Oils / Poems

These paintings are reflective of magic realism’s mythic and allegorical spaces...combining the visionary blurring of reality with myth and Mannerism. Intentionally awkward, they are expressively painted with certainty and alacrity, folding the narrative within their forms. Magic realism treads the edges of dream and reality, blurring fantasy with myth and allusion.(Ricardo Hoegg, essay 1/16 unpublished)
