Venerism is a word I created to describe my art style since I am venerating the visages of those past and present using realism and surrealism to capture their physical and spiritual essence. In this series I use my original graphite renderings via reduction and overlays along with other images to reflect the subject's narrative. In order to achieve the intimate and unique, layered effects I hand-feed the hot-pressed Arches paper through the printer multiple times, as if a printing press. Since each print is never the same they are not numbered. All art is hand signed on the back of the work, and each piece comes with a description explaining the composition.
