Ready to Hang

I chose abstract painting because it is about expressing emotion and creating a feeling or a mood. I like the challenge of communicating in a language that doesn't use words, and I love playing with color, design and texture to create interesting works of art.

My paintings are abstractions that explore the intersection between chaos and order, consciousness and sub-conscious, organic and inorganic and intentionality and accident. From a technical perspective, I use brushes, straws, droppers and other instruments to apply both paint (oil, latex, acrylic) and less traditional chemicals to the canvas. The techniques produce a variety of repetitive effects such as layering, swirling, lacing, striation and the formation of cell-like aggregations. Many aspects of the final work are intentional while others are intentionally less controlled. While the paintings are non-referential in the absence of formal subject, they intend to convey emotion and trigger a meditative state analogous to the creative state that produces them, and a reflection on the conflicts and polarities embedded in the creative process and the human experience.
