Painting abstractly connects me to an intuitive, emergent source. A visual language of personal and archetypal images will appear bridging the inner and outer worlds. I rely on my heart, body and instincts to guide me. I discern, make choices and the painting mirrors back to me how to proceed. Applying rhythmic layers of color onto canvas, I make use of a variety of tools such as the palette knife, rubber tips, pastel, acrylic and oil paint. The surface itself can tell a story as much as the colors that are used.
These paintings are reflections that mirror our commonality. This is where the real magic occurs and is deeply satisfying when the viewer connects to my art and understands yes, I know what this feels like.
"Angel Wing" expresses the dynamic experience of a wing opening, ready to fly and soar over our personal worlds to witness a more comprehensive view. Master painters such as Henri Matisse, Willem De Kooning, Gerhard Richter, Charline Von Heyl and Zhu Dequn have been inspirational for my artwork. Harmonic, playful and contextual interplays of color begin to demonstrate the infinite stream of information in the abstract universe of paint and canvas.
