On February 1st I moved into a new studio in Downtown Los Angeles and the light in this space has been a huge inspiration. From sunny to rainy to sunset to night, I have been studying the quality and movement of the light and infusing it into my art.
Influenced by Gerhard Richter after studying his documentary, I developed a deeper knowledge of technique and colors which I applied to the new series.
My technique is to apply layer upon layer on the canvas and then take away and add until I discover the painting I was meant to make. I use a large palette knife to apply paste and paint creating movement through color and texture. Using very vibrant colors excites me and as soon as I start to apply them to the canvas I can feel the energy move through me.
“Beyond a Vision has power and dynamic movement. I love the silvery metallic notes to it.”
~ Lee Morey, Collector
“Beneath the palette of golden tones, the passionate red rises to the surface. The warm tones enhance the subtle textures hidden beneath the surface.” ~ Carleton Eastlake, Collector
It is impossible to fully capture the power of these paintings in photographs. I hope you will have a chance to see them in person before they are sold.
