Blue Glass (Portrait of Philip Glass)

23"x19" | Original acrylic on paper, floated, black frame

"With the majority of my syringe work I am conveying an explicit narrative.  My goal is usually to shine a unique light on an event, or portray a certain aspect of a character's personality.

Each piece is a monoprint from some type of detailed template I create.  The template is an inverted, detailed representation of the ultimate image.  I then very quickly trace my template drawing with a paint filled syringe, and then press it to the blank sheet of paper," explains Gittes. "I forfeit a certain amount of influence over how the now deconstructed image turns out and often must try multiple times for each work."
