For the past several years, I have found myself moving away from figurative work and exploring what I could do with manipulating the pigments on the surface. Sometimes the work is purely abstract, and sometimes, the image suggests something figurative. I have learned to “go with the flow” and to allow the work to take me where it will. In my paintings, I enjoy exploring the relationships between dynamic colors and shapes. This series lead me to work with the juxtaposition of very warm and very cool colors, and the natural push-pull of the colors in relation to each other. Sometimes I can actually “feel” the vibrations of these elements, and the song within each image.
