Artist's Statement about the "Transmutation" Series

"Transmutation" is defined as the action of changing or the state of being changed into another form. This concept was explored through the creation of 12 portraits where the visual appearance of subjects were altered by the creation of painted layers and their physical images transformed into abstracted versions through various techniques.
