Artist Statement

 

I find beauty in the unexpected and in the mundane, in the unexpected pleasing.   My work is influenced by the American Post Painterly Abstractionists. These drawings and photos from my Urban Abstract series are of abstracted colorings of rust and weathered paint. Commonly, they contain the same strong aesthetic qualities and fundamental formal elements. I’m using rich colors and textures to purely enhance the viewer’s visual experience.
Done in an aesthetic style but also holding a conceptual meaning, I am documenting decay that occurs from abandonment and neglect. My work is evocative rather than descriptive, based on feeling, emotion or memory. I work intuitively, challenging what art is or may be. The results become almost landscape like and line work begins to embody mapping. The pieces document changes in an atypical micro-focused manner: colorful, textured and unexpectedly pleasing.
