This was created using a special process of painting with the unseen. In this case the unseen is the invisible forces of magnetism. The artist works from the unseen side of the painting - the back - gesturing the magnet, he affects the forces involved, which in turn move the iron on the surface of the canvas to create marks. The marks include thick textures of frozen magnetic force - the literal shapes of the magnetism at play - and ghostly records of the trail the force took. The result is a drawing, the record of unseen motions of invisible forces blocked behind the canvas. The canvas is then vacuumed leaving ghostly trails of marks. Again, a process of the unseen is at play. The vacuum embodies the void, a place without of matter, a place unseen, as it sucks up the iron (matter) form the surface. After the matter is gone the record of the matter's motion is left on the surface. This speaks of how we affect the unseen to affect the physical. Our thoughts, motions, and actions travel through space to connect and affect their sympathetic targets. The canvas also reveals what is not seen. Holes open up the front of the canvas to the back of the canvas showing what is on the inside, in this case color. The color also glows out from the sides to reflect onto the wall surrounding the canvas. The aura of color and holes reveal, connect and give clues to more of what is unseen, the backside of the painting.

The illusions of familiarity we hold onto for comfort can keep us from something we don't realize we are passionately in love with. Illusion and realism stunted my understanding of art until I experienced the beauty in the way my body, hands, and mind express. I sensed a love for my natural state. When I painted in the jungle for a summer, my illusions of failure, sustained by self-sabotage, fell apart. I let myself reconnect to things I loved — exploring and painting in nature. This event opened up abstract painting for me. Through abstraction and color I destabilize the illusion of “a place”. When paint has space to be paint (oozing, pooling, dripping, gritty, bright, and slimy smooth alchemical sludge) it can be unsettling, especially after its history of realism. Though it can be agitating, abstraction celebrates all of the qualities of paint. In the same way, we can make room to value our intrinsic characteristics through the unnerving acknowledgement of ourselves. I paint nature because it is the environment that sustains life, and from it we can resonate the life within ourselves. Nature tunes us, and in dissonance exposes our illusions. It speaks to our natural state below the ego. As nature calls us to journey through our boarders, we discover who we innately are. In admiring these findings we can make a place for ourselves. Slipping in and out of the familiar through abstract mark making, I draw parallels between nature and human nature in hopes that viewers will discover and cherish more of their inner-landscapes.
