Artist Statement
I love to paint and experiment with color and light as color is only the representation of light in different aspects. When I am painting pure abstract paintings I am constantly trying to recreate that infinitesimal moment in time when light and color become one. Blending into a captivating reflection of all that is in that moment. It is the perfect balance of the visual and the emotional state. However, when I paint more graphic paintings full of structured boundaries and unadulterated colors. I am trying to capture the waking dreams of my subconscious. It is like walking through a garden full of shapes and patterns that portray my thoughts and intentions. The shapes illustrate what is real and what is only considered. This kind of painting allows me to clear my mind and visually display my thoughts.
I find both painting styles calming. One for its balance and the other for the ability to express my inner thoughts in a visual format.
