When I was an animal

Nick Lepard applies oil paint to large canvas and charcoal to large paper. amazing work. pieces have great titles as well. raw and emotive. this from his artist statment:

In my most recent work I explore notions of singularity, concepts of time and patterns of change. Today, modernity requires that each of us navigate a blizzard of information. How this maelstrom of data is interpreted and synthesized constructs an individual’s paradigm. However, the qualities of the data are subject to a Catch-22: while the data works to describe an individual’s paradigm, an individual’s paradigm likewise works to describe the data.
