…Stylistically, the paintings are a blend of realism, surrealism, Pop, and Graffiti Art. And while some of the figure models depicted in the paintings are exotic dancers from Portland’s world-famous strip-club culture, not all the subject matter is fun-and-frothy. Some pieces deal with world affairs and events culled from the day’s headlines: the plight of Syrian immigrants, the Anonymous protest movement, and the standoff between the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and supporters of the controversial Dakota Access oil pipeline.
