My newest body of works, "Psychedelic Inspiration," utilizes short quotes in an op art scene. The quotes are strong and foul, some are soft and nice. Either way, you can see the quote if you want to see the quote when you walk into the room, then upon getting close to examine the piece, the quote disappears and it becomes a simple abstract painting.
This piece is a collaboration between artists Sean Christopher Ward and Tara Wilson. It was inspired by one of the main songs of Mardi Gras.
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.
