2021 - Abstract & Experimental Art
Real beauty is arresting and if you keep a sharp eye, you will find it everywhere. Sometimes I find myself stopped to admire a display of light and other times it's the orientation of a set of objects and sometimes it's the people. I often recall these instances of beauty when I paint. My work is frequently generated from memory but occasionally I use my own photographs as a reference. My paintings tend to reflect something on my mind or a place I'd like to return. The creative process is a form of meditation and source of mystery for me. I find the act of making abstract art similar to a game of chess. Every mark I make, color I introduce, pattern I repeat, and technique I employ is a move made on the chessboard intended to invoke the Muses. Every move made on the board creates a new dynamic of unfinished work until the final move is made and the chessboard becomes art.
