Drawing on the traditions of Impressionism and Lyrical Abstraction, I create colorful large-scale paintings that constitute a visual autobiography. Informed by my own experiences, my work reflects a visceral exploration of the dynamic relationship between the forces of man and nature, told through abstract landscapes and non-objective forms.
My work seeks to capture the ephemeral quality of nature and communicate the sublime sensation it inspires. Most of the visual elements in my paintings relate to the natural world, though abstract configurations and reductive forms often displace direct reference.
While emotion and intuition influence my creative process, an analysis of color, composition, and form drive my conceptual decisions. By using highly saturated colors, I mediate between black and white, nature’s expression of the infinite. By slowly composing layer upon layer, I perform an act of revelation. And by reducing forms to their purest essence, I attempt to liberate meaning from the confines of their figurative representation.
