Oil on Paper on Board
24 x 36 x 1.5"
Vibrant Fall was inspired during my walks during COVID. With months of introspection and isolation I found more beauty in nature than I ever appreciated before. During a time of despair and uncertainty, I created “Vibrant Fall” as an expression of hope for mankind to live in a better world.
As a former dancer, I approach each painting as a new choreography. Saturation of color amidst intricate lines and shapes is my medium of transmission. Juncture and intersection of line frequently inform me alongside motion, division of space, and observation of light. I first employ pencil, pastel and ink on paper. I begin by drawing various marks that dance around on the paper, which my imagination then uses to create contrasting textual designs with paint. The subtraction or simplification by erasure affords me the continuation of layering my materials to develop a repertoire of complexity of movement.
My artistic goal is to enjoy this dance-of-art and to be able to share it with you.
