My interest lies in the relationship of shapes, both positive and negative, as well as the relationship colors. I have recently returned in earnest to my art to explore this interest and have begun a deep exploration of shapes and colors and how they exist and relate in space. I am fascinated by the brain’s ability to seek out these relationships and find meaning and familiarity in the shapes and color relationship. I am also interested in creating movement and change in the composition.
I begin a painting with a basic idea of where I would like the painting to go. From there, the painting tells me where I should bring it. Looking closely at the surface of my paintings you can see how shapes and colors were developed and grew to become the final painting. I paint exclusively in casein as I have found that it’s consistency, color, and coverage is the best paint to help me achieve my vision.
