Art is my passion...
My work is best described as lyrical neglected landscapes alluding to the natural world through flat color planes and geometric forms. I utilize symbols and design elements from iconography, cartography, geology, and architecture. Abstract compositions evolve through a process of constructing and erasing. I am interested in how the effects from climate and man-made structures alter the physical environment I am drawn to vibrant colors which convey how I feel more than what I see. It is my intention to express the poetry, music, and emotion of experiences more than the narrative of events.
“Truth itself has not more truth than this; whatever the art in itself does not contain, the mind imagining, clearly understands.”
Angelo Poliziano, Stanze, Book 1, stanze CXIX/19
