About The Artwork

I had a close encounter with someone I admire dearly, we spoke about what it means to be free in your art. We discussed the limitations that we sometimes put on ourselves as artist, whether it be self ridicule or seeking validation from others. " Be Free" is a pictorial representation of what it means to be free and feel free from boundaries we sometimes put on ourselves creatively. I hope that viewers take with them a sense of empowerment, a feeling of boldness. I hope that it evokes thought through movement and hidden messages throughout the piece. I chose acrylic and interior paint due to the flexibility of it. Its ability to flow down the canvas like running water is something I love to incorporate in my work. I also use pencil to write words of encouragement and messages to viewers that can not be seen immediately. This style of art is organic to me, its not something that I choose but it is something that comes from within. I reflect on moments in time and i apply the energy that i felt in that moment onto canvas. I hope it resonates.

ARTIST STATEMENT: Without the ability to actualize an idea or concept art would not exist. My work is a constant search for the best way to interpret energy. I do not limit myself to one style or concept. Inspiration and ideas change, knowledge changes and we evolve. Each piece i create is simultaneously and extension of my thoughts, past experiences, present exchanges of energy and previews of the future. I am a contemporary abstract artist. I use interior paint, acrylic paint, oil pastels and extreme texture mediums to convey my thoughts and emotions and to express my view on current events. I incorporate gestural movement and many markings to express freedom. i include hidden words and numbers that are a significant part of my every day life. I like the idea of being able to evoke thought, passion and ideas from my work. I would like each viewer to take with them a feeling of boldness creativity and believing in their higher self through color and texture.
