ABOUT MY ART
I choose imagery that soothes and nurtures as a visual antidote to life’s chaos. My works fluctuate from contemplative abstractions to photo realistic, luminous depictions of landscapes and flowers. Consistent in the diversity of my work is the illusion of light. It is light which makes everything visible to our eyes yet it also represents invisible forces: energy, spirit, thought, emotion. My work explores the connection between form and formless.
The illusion of spatial dimension and light is created through a modified old masters technique involving multiple layers of transparent oil paints and alkyd resin applied to canvas. Starting with a blurry image, I augment the details and contrast and then soften the image with thin translucent washes of paint then slowly redefine the details. This back and forth process is repeated until the right balance is achieved.
