This piece is inspired by Pollack and 1980's graffiti art. The color is used to give many impressions. The greatest of which is that our peripheral field is limitless in contrast to our focus. There are also themes of color blindness, limited perceptions of our world, and race relations.
I have always had a different perspective of the world around me. My mind has always been saturated with color and emotion. I have lived with a persistent need to preserve and illuminate visual and visceral experiences. I grew up in the South, realizing at a young age I was a misfit. Most of my life has been a mixture of extremes, and I have had the fortune of being able to explore life without dogma and restrictions while living in a part of the country with an identity crisis of its own. I have been fortunate to have circled the globe and taught to find beauty everywhere. I first attended art school in Atlanta in my 20's. I have a great love of textiles, fabrics, architecture, literature among many things. I enjoy the freedom of expression through visual, written and spoken form. I am also a child of the theater with a restless spirit.
