Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

Slipping in and out of the familiar through abstract mark making, my work draws parallels between nature and human nature. Paint application ranges from thin willowy-fang-like strokes to thick juicy plumages of clustered marks. These shapes coalesce into landscape, figure, and home, eventually dissipating into abstract impressions. My hope is that viewers will encounter their inner realities by engaging the work's limbo state.  
Within this innate reflection, I question the potential fears and inspirations, the knowns and unknowns the observers might meet in themselves. This interaction mirrors the sublime that landscape painting aspires to. My goal is to uncover the possible hidden landscapes of being human: who we are, our bodies as organic technology, and humans as spirit beings. 

This painting is created using a special process. Sound, as well as brush, applies the pigment. The canvas is literally turned into a speaker, lain flat, and as sound reverberates through the canvas the pigment moves according to the harmonics present.
