This painting is an abstract landscape of sorts, where tone and texture combine to imply form. I layered with a combination of palette knife, brushstroke and methodical mark making.
Nature is a point of departure, where process, color, and form interact to create an evocative language within my paintings. Drawing with paint and tone informs the viewer of movement and vibrancy within a space. While methodical layering begins a conversation between still and active, past and present. Traveling is a large part of what inspires my work. Experiencing diverse landscapes and cultures shapes the way I view and interact with the world around me. A color, shape or texture observed during my travels may be the spring board for an entire series of work in which it is my goal to re imagine beauty within a memory.
