Throughout time, there has been individuals that stand out among the crowd for their ideas, for their actions, for their achievements. These memorized image of these individuals begin to fade over time. My abstracted portrait series, entitled, “Fading Identities” is a homage to these individuals and reminds people that the general characteristics of a person is all you need to remember their identity and what they stood for.
Throughout my last 20 years in the field of fine arts, I have had an exquisite fascination with color theory and the effects of using the entire spectrum within a work to create illusions and movement. My inspirations such as Bridget Riley and Victor Vasarely have given me the foundation in my studies of their works, and I have built upon that, along with my background in graphic design, to create abstracted portraits, expressionistic designs, and intricate mandalas. Each of my main subject focuses has lone intentions, but comprise the same technique in which my art is created, that allow my work to be an homage to not only individuals or designs, but rather, color in general.
