About The Artwork

This painting was inspired by the golden hour in Austin Texas. I was there in mid fall and was amazed every day at how the sun reflected off everything around me. I hope to share that warm feeling through this piece.

I view painting as my attempt to externalize physical sensations that I experience in different environments. When I look at the world around me, I notice the interplay between organic and manmade objects and study their color and composition. These images serve as forms of data that I can inject into my paintings. In the last two years, I have mainly focused on creating abstract oil paintings. I am inspired by the variety of textures that the medium offers and frequently manipulate my work as it dries to document temporality in a visual way. Inspired by the works of female abstract expressionist painters, including Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Elaine de Koonig, and Grace Hartigan, I actively try to resist the common conventions tied to technical painting. I do not use a strict calculus or formula to mix colors and my palette is quite raw and ever-evolving. In the time I would spend creating a pure or precise color, I would lose the physical flow or connection that I have to a particular thought or image. Although my paintings are obviously fixed objects, they attempt to preserve kinetic motion through line and gesture. Painting allows me to intimately connect with my body; my artistic practice is guided by physical intuition, affect, and motion.
