My work explores my relationship between nature and urban spaces. New synergies are generated from both simple and complex meanings.
Ever since I was a child, I have been fascinated by the unrelenting divergence of relationships. What starts out as contemplation and disambiguation, becomes finessed into a carnival of color leaving only a sense of depth and vibrancy that layers hidden meanings.
As spacial forms become distorted through frantic and repetitive practice, the viewer is left with a testament to the outpost of our world.
I use a mixture of different techniques and styles… Including paint markers, spray paint, acrylic paint, found objects, paper… and hidden ramblings..
In all my works, I am concerned with expressing the moment and to convey that into a cohesive and thought-provoking object of art, that allows the viewer to also be introspective of their own thoughts and desires.
Colors, shapes, and textures break through the surface of my consciousness and start to grow from within the canvas, as glimpses of an insight or the fragment of a revelation comes into focus. My abstract work is alive. As the invisible becomes visible, hidden meanings and images step forth or recede, inviting the viewer to stop, behold, and ponder the very moment of creation.
