The Sixth Genre: Beast Mimic/Torured Beastnoid

I always paint what I actually see. In essence, this is an eternal subject matter in painting: imitation and representation. Perhaps depicting visible objects is the genuine and everlasting method. However, no matter what we see or what we paint, all the images are like the ever-changing reflections on bubbles, flickering and ephemeral.
