Chaos crashing the calm. Beauty emerging from the ugly. Movement and energy and secrets and dreams. These are the things I see in my work. I am more interested in processes than outcomes, and for that reason I never plan, I just start working and let the art appear. The act of dragging a tool loaded with paint across a canvas or clicking the shutter on a camera is a meditative experience for me, and I never feel quite as present as I do when I’m creating.
Abstraction is emotion, and I believe that abstract art is best experienced rather than read about or talked about. I can’t tell you why I prefer a darker, moodier color palette or why my paintings are concerned with movement and texture while my photography is obsessed with line and form. My hope is simply that my work speaks to you in a positive way.
