The moment you cheat for the sake of beauty, you know you're an artist. -David Hockney
My studio work spans two parallel practices. Expressive oil painting and carbon paper mixed media works. In both,
I explore the formal possibilities of pattern, brushwork and abstraction.
Influenced by Japanese art and abstract expressionism, I develop my own technique, using carbon paper and paint solvents, creating prints and mixed media collage works. Traditionally used for creating copies, the carbon paper, in this case, is used to create one-off works of art.
In contrast to the colorful oil paintings, the carbon paper works have a limited color scheme of black and blue creating a somewhat mystical environment.
