Egon Schiele

the major criticisms i have received about my work are on my lack of space and use of line. 

i have tried to work to resolve these "issues", but i cant seem to get passed this interest in juxtaposing flat space and line with three dimensional rendering of forms.

i am not interested in deep defined pictorial space. i'm interested in squeezing realistic space out of my paintings. having my paintings push into the viewers space.

A classmate suggested i look at Egon Schiele, an artist that has a similar interest. Schiele places figures on a flat ground and successfully balances drawing and painting.
