Bay Area Artist & Sculptor
Artist Statement - Hi There!
- My work explores the relationship between the physical and emotional sides of the human context, in varying levels of abstraction. To be alive is to in an emotional tempest, and I capture my unique and profound experience.
- Mistakes and randomness interest me most, as they facilitate being loose and organic. By moving fast and concentrating on an emotional feeling, my work takes on a life of it’s own. Rather than avoiding all connections with reality as some abstraction does, the emotional and physical context of a piece lives on within its many layers.
- In sculpture, I abstract the essence of the human form to create the organic but recognizable likeness of a face.
- In paintings, I use rhythm, movement, and depth to generate active paintings. By formalizing the coincidental, I emphasize the conscious process of composition and the relentless progress of life that begs us to stop and consider it's beauty for a frozen second.
