It’s all an experiment and it’s all an expression of what floating around internally. Sometimes it’s a cry for help and a search for peace. Other times, it’s an expression of complete and utter joy. All in all, the art I produce is a journal… telling the story of my life… the quests, the victories, the defeats… in one way or another they tell the story, in chapters filled with colors, textures and shapes.
I feel most comfortable creating abstracts… freer with less pressure to create something exact.
Everything I absorb in sight, the ocean, the forest and trees and the sky gets repurposed through my photography and resin work. What goes in, comes out.
My art is a way for me to contribute beauty or meaning in an otherwise pretty nutty world that we live in. I strive to create an antidote to the craziness…. Something that will calm and ease the pain of those difficult times in life.
Full disclosure, most of the time, I feel self-conscious when letting the video run while I work… it’s a solitary process for me…very intimate. My relationship with the piece evolves spontaneously most of the time and it’s difficult for me to do that when I know someone is watching. I feel a little selfish about this…. But I also honor it, for the good of the piece that I am creating.
All the colors, the resin, and aluminum are like instruments to me… creating in the end, one final piece… and I am always desiring to create a beautiful symphony… where each part plays off of the other. Sometimes, by accident, these parts clash and to my surprise… it works!
I can’t express how excited and grateful I am that I will be working with Brittany Davis in this capacity. I love her passion and her support is insurmountable.
