"I have always been drawn to human faces. I believe this strong, innate attraction and the primal, archetypal nature of human faces have lead me to the love and profession of portraiture. Outside the realm of portraiture, my art consists mostly of still-lifes They are realistic, yet possess a subtle degree of surrealism. I believe these pieces reflect my love of beauty--especially that found in nature--as well as a subconscious and conscious desire for peace and simplicity." - Talbot Hopkins
