ARTIST STATEMENT


 

In my work, I explore the relationships between various color harmonies and surface textures. For me, painting is a way to use color, texture, and form to create a visually stimulating image. It is also a way for me to explore the range of possibilities allowed through subtle changes in color choices, compositions, methods of application and surface preparations. I think that a painting should be first and foremost, a painting and meanings are extra layers, not the foundation.  I am inspired by microscopic imagery landscape and groups like the Fauves, Cubists, Abstract Expressionists, Les Automatistes, some Minimalists and Post Modern Abstract Expressionists.
