Ready to Hang
Vortex is a work that uses lines and their implied nature to create a very active, yet minimalistic, piece of art. In my hometown, we get tornadoes that can strike at any moment, and this vortex, is similar to that, but where colors can strike at any moment! It is currently hanging on consignment at The Lakeside Club, here in Wichita.
The next subject, “White Space Designs”, is a more expressionistic dedication to our world in design. Each of these pieces utilize created elements of design over a white background and through the usage of color theory and the full spectrum, create designs that are optically kinetic, or quaintly stationary just to exude beauty within a composition.
This piece is on a birch panel, raised 2 1/2", titled, signed and dated on the back. All paints used are Golden Paint and Liquitex Professional acrylics. Reason I mention this, is because I produce my work to last the test of time through using only the highest quality of materials.
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.
