As abstract art is an unpredictable source of imagination, it is a strong contender of communication. My work evolves through a balance of analytical knowledge and creative energy. During my painting practices as a professional artist and instructor it is advantageous to exercise the basic elements and principles of art, including compositional formats and color theory.
When energy is projected by applying a feeling or emotion to the abstract representation of any subject, the work develops into a more interesting and powerful work of art. Without establishing a set formula, I encounter many approaches for beginning a painting. By observing the lines and shapes of any tangible subject, a conceptual breakdown is key. The deconstruction or elimination of detail and use of expressive and contour drawing transforms images into vague representations. The application or building of layers with additional media reconstructs the work into abstraction.
The development of my art has been highly influenced by historical American abstract expressionists Joan Mitchell and Cy Twombly.
Through extensive research and studies of their techniques my previous representational landscapes and seascapes dramatically changed into expressionistic versions resulting in paintings that have both raw and refined qualities.
