Todd Pinkham’s paintings, rich with imagery of heroes, deities, and monsters, act as translators for all the things his conscious mind cannot yet grasp. In Pinkham’s paintings virtue and vice are constantly in battle. The visual graffiti Pinkham creates allows for multiple voices in the narratives of his paintings. Each voice projects an identity with a different moral compass to choose from and explore. Pinkham’s artistic process creates the space for him to construct conscious views of himself. Mediators between the spiritual and natural world, his paintings provide him with solutions to problems afflicting his misguided soul.
