2018 - Belgium
My paintings are a reflection of what I read, the music I listen to, and my understanding of the natural world. I tend to obsess over information I find inspiring. I enjoy reading history and imagining the world as it was while I work. Balance is a key part of my process. Most paintings begin with a monotone drawing that I bring to balance. Color is worked in the same way. One painting may be built up with as many as thirty color layers, some more. The end result is usually a chaotic, yet balanced torrent of swirling color. Zen is the guiding principal of my process. The organic images that grow out of that process tend to be heavily informed by what I am reading and listening to in the studio.
