The Story Behind the Art

For this piece, my inspiration is Philip, a great guy, and a seriously tough dude. I named the painting “Intension”, after a song written by his favorite band, Tool. The words “Moved By Will Alone” on Philip’s shirt were taken directly from the lyrics of the song itself, and I think they sum up Philip’s attitude and sense of purpose while fighting his illness perfectly. In addition to both of us going through cancer treatments, we are also both artists and musicians, so right from the get-go, we had a ton in common. When I photographed Philip for reference images for the painting, there was naturally and instinctively a sense of defiance in the photos, which I thought was absolutely perfect and really got me excited about making this painting. It’s been a real honor getting to know Philip, as he has inspired me greatly on my own journey in fighting cancer. I’m truly grateful and humbled to have been a part of this process.
