About The Painting:
"Faces Of The Parabox" is a subset from "The Boy In The Box" series. Commencing upon the precipice of homelessness, “The Boy In The Box” follows the rigid geometric structuring of the “The Up-Side Of Down” and represents the perpetual quest for personal freedom and breaking outside of the box.
"A Father That Was The Son" reflects upon the dynamics of father and son relationships and their intricate complexities. Some of us have great relationships with our fathers while for others, it's a bit more tumultuous. Regardless, there are always lessons for us to learn, good and bad, as the son grows to become a man and perhaps a father himself.
A father is often the sun for a son and I happened to lose mine early in life which left me in a place of darkness for many many years. There is a very big part of him still inside of me and for too long, I carried the weight of his shadow, most of those years not even aware I was doing so. The sun can cast a mighty shadow and I am still learning to step out of his. I'm not sure if I will ever become a father myself or what the universe has in store for me...but if I do, I would like to think that I would be a good one and a man that would make my father proud.
I was blessed to be adopted by a new father several years after losing my biological. I learned valuable lessons from them both that I will carry with me always. Fathers, teach your sons to be honorable men of character and integrity. I am thankful that mine did and although there may have been some very dark nights, this son still rises.

A giclee (pronounced zhee-clay) is a high-end and upscale fine art reproduction. Each giclee is custom created just for you and stretched on a 1.5" stretcher bar.
In the giclee process, the image is generated from a high-resolution digital scan and printed with UV inks onto archival quality canvas. An ultra-fine stream of non-toxic water based ink, more than 4 million droplets per second, is jet-sprayed onto the canvas. This produces a combination of over 3 million possible colors resulting in prints that are lush and vibrant with the look and tonality of a fine art painting. A fantastic advantage of giclee printing is that the digital images can be reproduced to almost any size, giving me the ability to customize prints for a specific client.
Giclee prints have gained worldwide acceptance in the art community and can be found at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Louvre in Paris, displaying works which cannot be allowed out of the museum cellars and would otherwise never be shown to the public.
Take a canvas giclee, give it a little extra love, make it one-of-a-kind, and you’ll have an artist enhanced giclee. My artist enhanced giclees are custom created and painted specially for you. I hand-embellish each one of these creations with paint, adding brushstrokes, textures, and pops of color. The paint really brings the giclee to life, adding bright and vivid energy. There is nothing like it. My artist enhanced giclees are the next best thing to my originals and at a fraction of the cost. Each one is hand-signed by yours truly.
