Acrylic on canvas, 36"x24", 2019, $595
This is an abstract landscape, textured and brightly colored with blue, yellow and green.
My paintings are informed by my background in architecture and my love of nature; I like to explore the energy between the two by creating space in my compositions.
The space or “air” is a device that allows the viewer’s eye a chance to rest and reflect.
Whether abstracts or figurative landscapes, I am inspired to paint work that is simultaneously earthy and ethereal.
I employ a balance of contrasting, yet dynamic colors, texture via brush, palette knife or rag strokes.
While my work is an outlet of expression; the experience for both viewer and artist is uniquely personal.
