Opening yesterday evening to over 600 people, Triads presents a new series of hyper-realistically painted triptychs.

combine with industrial materials, intuitively forming architectural and
model-like sculptures of hollow skeletal forms, each simultaneously
mechanistic and organic, abstract but evocative of representation.
