My work is in connecting the human body to nature in an attempt to relate to humanity. I do so through abstracting forms, what remains shares similar rhythms, colors and textures. This language is then accessed to create a visual map of human emotion. Honest and raw, paint marks build together to lay ambiguous forms, a blurred perspective from the image mimics the internal process of contemplation. The comfort of familiar elements and the opening to the unknown connections, create a conscious space for the viewer to inhabit within the architectural construct of the image. A mental landscape in which to explore concepts of human connection to self, each other, the organic and the space between. Upon closely viewing the paint, depth of texture and application provide a sensual experience that occurs in the third dimension with the body that is participating with the work in the present moment.
Solid masses transform into light veils of gas. This processes begins with acceptance of what is and allowing the weathering of time to transform the current state into what will follow. The rise and billow of a feeling, a situation, or a thought is met by luminous vapors, it holds for a moment suspended in the air, then dissipates into the atmosphere. The occurrence does not vanish entirely, but lightens into the mass of all shared experiences.
