About

Large gallery wrapped canvas. Sides painted grey. Ready to hang. Blue, grey, green, pink, cream, teal, abstract, geometric, intersecting, layers. ARTIST STATEMENT In my art practice, I strive to create paintings that evoke an acute awareness and centered meditative state towards our daily surroundings using a tight geometric abstract visual language. Often using a horizon line to create a point of reference for the viewer, my paintings evolve with varied opaque and translucent layers of acrylic paint on canvas. While I create a time-based visual context for my paintings with sunrises and sunsets in color choices and titles, my hyper-realistic execution of stillness through a tight complex network of lines and forms indicates an almost suffocating state of our present day reality. I strive to present a perceptual consciousness through the spatial organization of architectural and natural landscapes alike with great attention to the foundation of my colors. While easily interpreted as geometric abstract landscape paintings, it is my hope that the intensity of my compositions demands an unorthodox attention from the viewer to invest in a centered and calm vision within the chaotic times of our present day.
