Conversations are illustrated through hundreds of hand-drawn white lines showing opinions and arguments between people. Color demonstrates the lively ebb and flow.
Being surrounded by color is my greatest joy and I want to share that with people. I love the energy, warmth, and happiness that a great work of art can bring into someone’s home.
My art reflects a world in a constant state of flux, with intensity and intimacy. Industrial Design and Geometric Abstraction provide inspiration which flow through my drawings. There is an awesome energy in abstract precision.
Working wet into wet, I use the chemical and physical properties of the inks, the substrate porosity, time, temperature, and humidity to create the patterns in this organic painting method. It is science meets art.
My paintings are an expression of personal responses to environment and experiences. The work comes into being with a combination of pigment, design elements, and collage.
Following a period of turmoil and uncertainty, one attempts to regain footing on solid ground. Yet that solid ground may not be solid at all, continuing to shift, albeit more slowly, beneath one’s feet.
My work has revealed itself as a process capable of addressing a range of emotions, some painful, some joyful, but none ordinary or indifferent. Color and movement define my work.
Works are inspired by Abstract, Impressionist and Nouveau Art. Paintings are done with palette knives in an “Alla Prima” method. Abstract static shapes contrast the loose movement of Impressionist passages.
The coral color created when blending the background of this piece had such a pure, powerful energy, it took a while to move forward. Adding turquoise as contrast was the key for me. Color is my inspiration!
States of change resulting from conflict is a central theme. Mixing paint and interference mediums, provokes temporary instability. I exploit this instability with styles and techniques which drive the formation of intricate and intriguing patterns.
I paint non-objective abstract work. There’s just something about applying paint to texture that surprises me every time. It’s like magic, it captures my creativity and makes me feel alive.
My work is about transformation, expansion and weaving together diverse ideas to allow something new to emerge. I work intuitively and am most interested in the liminal and potent spaces before things are fixed.
With color, composition and texture I engage inspiration and imagination leaving room for the viewer’s interpretation and spice up his space.
Through abstract art you can see life in a better way, deal with crises, overcome obstacles. I mostly prefer to work with multiple materials in addition to acrylic paint, such as pigments and tar gel.
Usually my paintings reflect calmness and tranquility, yet are also about energy and balance. The paints I use are clear bright colors, with vital movement and form, creating a composition that energizes and uplifts.
I find the perspective of looking at the ground much more intimate and complex than traditional panoramic scenes. There is a quiet dynamic force always present on the ground.
A version of man and the universe travels through time and space, these are the intense colors of vibrancy at a standstill state. From the art series, “Vibrant Nature & Universe Sensations”.
